## Development Source¶

The main repository for GDAL is located on github at https://github.com/OSGeo/GDAL.

You can obtain a copy of the active source code by issuing the following command

git clone https://github.com/OSGeo/GDAL.git


### Build requirements¶

To build GDAL 3 or later, you need at a minimum a C++11 compatible compiler, and PROJ 6 or later. This will only give you a minimum build which will lack a lot of drivers. Consult Raster drivers and Vector drivers pages for additional optional dependencies.

## Binaries¶

In this section we list a number of the binary distributions of GDAL all of which should have fully reproducible open source build recipes.

### Windows¶

Windows builds are available via Conda Forge (64-bit only). See the Conda section for more detailed information.

### Debian¶

Debian packages are now available on Debian Unstable.

### Conda¶

Conda can be used on multiple platforms (Windows, macOS, and Linux) to install software packages and manage environments. Conda packages for GDAL are available at https://anaconda.org/conda-forge/gdal.

conda install [-c channel] [package...]

conda install -c conda-forge gdal
