To run GPSTk 2.10 examples, first install GPSTk for Python as below.


GPSTk 2.10 requires Python 2.7.

  1. Use Anaconda to switch to Python 2.7 by
    conda create -n py27 python=2.7
    conda activate py27
  2. install prereqs
    apt install g++ make cmake swig doxygen sphinx-common


  1. Download gpstk source
    git clone
    cd GPSTk
  2. Build & install. This takes several minutes, and emits a very large number of C++11 deprecation warnings
    ./ -ue
