Installing VicPy

The VicPy Python module for manipulating Vic-3D data is now available. For consistency and ease of installation, we are using the Anaconda® platform. 

To install VicPy:

  1. Download Anaconda from this link.
  2. Install Anaconda. For installation type, it is best to select "Just Me"; if you select "All Users" you must complete the console steps below in an elevated console.
  3. Be sure that boxes "Add Anaconda to my PATH environment variable" and "Register Anaconda as my default Python 3.11" are marked.
  4. Run the Anaconda console ("Anaconda Prompt" from the Start menu). If you installed for "All Users" above, you may have to right-click and Run as administrator.

  5. From the Anaconda console, run the command: conda install -c correlatedsolutions vicpy
  6. The VicPy module is now installed. All VicPy programs must be run from the Anaconda console. 
  7. If you'd like to test the module, you can find a curated selection of high-quality example scripts on our Utilities page..

For offline installation, tarballs are available at the following links:

For this option, use conda install vicpy-1.0-pyNN_0.tar.bz2.
