Jupyter Notebook installed with ArcGIS Pro does not allow a person to install geopandas. I thought if I install Anaconda software separately that might allow me to installing geopandas but it does not. It seems geopandas can not be installed  using Jupyter Notebook if ArcGIS Pro is installed on the same computer. This means we can't teach both Arcpy and geopandas using the same computer. Can this problem be fixed? 




Did you clone the the Python Package environment installed with ArcGIS Pro 2.5?

Make the clone active and then install GeoPandas?

You cannot modify the Python Package environment installed with Pro, you have to clone it and modify the clone.  That way you can always revert back to the original environment.

This is fixed as of ArcGIS Pro 2.8, geopandas can now be installed into an environment that also contains arcpy:

Steps to get geopandas installed (can be done through python package manager in ArcGIS Pro backstage backstage as well):

  • Clone arcgispro-py3 and activate clone
    • Using Python Command Prompt
      • conda create --clone arcgispro-py3 -n my_clone
      • proswap my_clone
    • Or use Python manage environments in ArcGIS Pro backstage
      • Manage Environments >> click Clone Default
      • Activate (toggle radio button) clone
      • Restart ArcGIS Pro (clone and re-open).
  • Install geopandas
    • Using Python Command Prompt
      • conda install geopandas -y
    • Or use Python package manager in ArcGIS Pro backstage
      • Install Packages tab >> search geopandas >> click Install
