Using Basemap on levante

Basemap has reached end-of-life and we won’t install basemap system wide (python 3 module) but you can easily install it into a personal conda environment like this

On Levante:

module load python3
conda create --name mybasemap basemap   # Add more packages as needed
source activate mybasemap

Check that you can import it in Python

python
from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap
