    168168=== Introduction === 
     
    210210=== GEOS === 
    211211 
    212 After PostGIS has installed, copy the GEOS (`libgeos-3-0-0rc4.dll`, `libgeos_c-1.dll`), and PROJ (`libproj.dll`) libraries from `C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin` (or wherever you installed PostgreSQL) to a location accessible to the Python interpreter (e.g., `C:\Python25\DLLs`, or `C:\Python25`). 
     212After PostGIS has installed, copy the GEOS (`libgeos-3-0-0rc4.dll`, `libgeos_c-1.dll`) libraries from `C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin` (or wherever you installed PostgreSQL) to a location accessible to the Python interpreter (e.g., `C:\Python25`). 
    213213 
    214214'''Note:''' The path to the GEOS library may be manually specified by setting `GEOS_LIBRARY_PATH` in your settings with the full path of the DLL. 
    215215 
    216 === GDAL/OGR === 
    217  
    218 The premiere GDAL/OGR binary package for Windows is [http://fwtools.maptools.org/ FWTools], however, the libraries I downloaded (1.4.1 at the time) were missing functions needed for the library interface -- I need to investigate again to provide additional details.  This is the reason why QGIS is used to obtain compiled GDAL libraries for Windows. 
    219  
    220  
    221 A snapshot (0.9.0 Preview-2) windows installer of [http://www.qgis.org/ Quantum GIS] (QGIS) can be obtained from [http://download.qgis.org/qgis/win32/qgis_setup0.9.0.01_09_2007.exe here]. Once installed, copy all the DLLs from `C:\Program Files\Quantum GIS` to `C:\Python25`: Do not overwrite any dlls that come from PostGIS. 
    222  
    223 '''Note:''' The path to the GDAL library may be manually specified by setting `GDAL_LIBRARY_PATH` in your settings with the full path of the DLL. 
     216=== PROJ.4 === 
     217 
     218Download the [ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/proj/proj446_win32_bin.zip PROJ 4.6.0] Windows binary distribution and extract to a location on your hard drive (for example `C:\PROJ`).  Copy the PROJ DLL, `proj.dll`, from your extraction location to `C:\Python25`.  Finally, create a Windows environment variable (see above for instructions) entitled `PROJ_LIB` and have it set to the `nad` subdirectory where you extracted the PROJ distribution (e.g., `C:\PROJ\nad`). 
     219 
     220=== GDAL === 
     221 
     222Download the [http://download.osgeo.org/gdal/win32/1.5/gdalwin32exe150.zip GDAL 1.5] Windows binary distribution and extract to a location on your hard drive (for example `C:\gdalwin32-1.5`).  Copy ''all'' the DLLs from the `bin` subdirectory of the extraction location to `C:\Python25`.  Finally, create another Windows environment variable called `GDAL_DATA`, setting it to the `data` subdirectory where the GDAL distribution was extracted (e.g., `C:\gdalwin32-1.5\data`).
