- In order to program in Python and use the provided Python libraries, read the information on the PolyWikiTI.
- The requirements of the Python tools (the required modules) are the following:
- the essential modules are Matplotlib and Numpy
- the following libraries are optional. They are necessary for (sometimes very) specific classes/functions:
- Computer Vision (cvutils.py): OpenCV (to be installed from source preferrably), scikit-image
- Statistics and machine learning (ml.py): scipy, scikit-learn
- Moving object geometry (moving.py) and plotting shapely polygons (utils.py): shapely
- Tabular data loading/processing (storage.py): pandas
- Metadata (metadata.py): sqlalchemy
- Optimization: munkres
- You can install all required (essential and optional) using the
python-requirements.txtfile with pip:
sudo -H pip3 install -r python-requirements.txt --upgrade.
- Download the current reporitory version or clone (using mercurial, see the button at the top of the Source page and instructions on PolyWikiTI).
- Installation can now be done using the provided
setup.pyor pip and more simply through the Makefile:
$ sudo make installpython. Otherwise, if for example you do not have system installation rights (sudo), you should look into the PYTHONPATH environment variable (see again PolyWikiTI).
- To test your installation, start a python interpreter (or even better, ipython) and try to import the cvutils and storage modules by typing the following:
>>> from trafficintelligence import cvutils >>> from trafficintelligence import storage
- The provided Python modules are in the subdirectory
trafficintelligenceand the executable scripts, e.g.
compute-homography.py, in the subdirectory
If there are no errors, you are all set and can start programming in Python using the provided libraries (see the other guides on the homepage).
