[Matplotlib-devel] GEOS installation for Basemap package

Ahlam Al Qasim
To whom it may concern, 

I hope this email finds you well. I am trying to get the Basemap package on my mac, and have been following the instructions based on this webpage:  https://matplotlib.org/basemap/users/installing.html. I don't have GEOS already installed so I tried following steps on the website to download it with Basemap:

cd geos-3.3.3
export GEOS_DIR=<where you want the libs and headers to go>
# A reasonable choice on a Unix-like system is /usr/local, or
# if you don't have permission to write there, your home directory.
./configure --prefix=$GEOS_DIR
make; make install

However, I am getting errors at the third step (make; make install). Attached is a copy of what I get on my python console, if it helps. I think the error occurs when trying to create the /include directory, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I'm still new to python so any help would be much appreciated!

Best regards,
Ahlam Al Qasim
