Install GDAL on Windows | burdGIS

GDAL is incredibly useful and learning some basic commands will serve you well. First though you (may) need to install it. Here’s a video to show you how to di that on Windows and we also look at how to set your paths correctly and get rid of the “not recognized as an internal or external command” blight.

  1. Have you done the environment video yet?

  2. thanks, helped a lot 🙂 first the path did not appear, but i added via browsing and then gdal_translate commands was easily found in cmd on windows 🙂

  3. hello, this is a bit OOT, but any chance you might know somehow how to install unreleased (development) version of GDAL (the newest one now is 3.1) into Anaconda/Python environment? thank you

  4. This was so helpful for me, Thank you!

  5. hey i have set the path of the gdal still while searching in cmd its showing " 'gdal' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

    operable program or batch file."
    Plz tell me what is the problem sir.

  6. Hi, I am having a very hard time with the interaction of GDAL, Java8, and ArcGis – Desktop. Continuously stuck on the error:
    "java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:Program Files (x86)Javajdk1.8.0_231bingdalalljni.dll: The operating system cannot run %1"
    My version of ArcGis for Desktop runs 32 bit, and so my IDE is set up this way as well.
    I'm still seeing the same results running gdal_translate after following this video's instructions.
    Still one of the best instructional videos I've seen thus far for this, though!

  7. That is very of interest! I am instlaling gdal into a virtual environemnt but having trouble. Please get back to us. Love and subscribed –


  8. Hi, thanks for your video. I had installed gdal and "gdal_translate works but gdal_merge doens't
    first said
    python: can't open file '': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
    and with said
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "", line 38, in <module>

    from osgeo import gdal

    ImportError: No module named osgeo

    it's like need something else. gdal_merge works from qgis but I want to run it outside qgis.

  9. Very informative video. Keep up the good work.

  10. Worked like a charm! Thanks

  11. GDAL typically comes installed with QGIS. It also creates widows environment (paths etc) and is available via shortcut in QGIS folder which also is installed by default on your desktop. Just run OSGeo4W Shell from that folder to open the command line with GDAL tools pre-configured.
    GDAL is really powerful. It was my life saver when I had to put huge raster mosaic dataset to for re-tiling and re-warping. I put all the raster in single virtual raster (VRT) without having to load them into memory of QGIS user interface.
