[python #GGV-297535]: NEXRAD Archive Access


One challenge you're going to have with Collab is that building CartoPy 
requires building some C-code and installing some non-Python dependencies, and 
CartoPy does not provide pre-built wheels on PyPI. Thus a `pip install` of 
CartoPy will require access to a compiler, as well as development headers for 
PROJ and GEOS. I'm not surprised it doesn't work there. I'm not sure if I know 
of anyone who has succeeded with CartoPy+Collab, but it is possible I've just 
missed it.

My best advice is to install with Anaconda/miniconda:

conda install -c conda-forge cartopy

Hope this helps,
