comment Lat Long to Useable values in QGIS
In order to convert deg/min second to decimal degrees I do it with the following formula in a spreadsheet deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600). for western longitudes and southern latitudes I do as follows -1*(deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600)). Usually I isolate the results by copy and paste values add a column with a name/identifier and save as a csv comma delimited file. Then you can use the "add delimited text layer" plug in to load the points in qgis. Hope it helps

comment Cropping or removing borders (not NoData) from multiple scanned and georeferenced maps (ArcMap or QGIS)
First try to see what is the value of the black edge with the identifying tool. Then you can try to covert your file to another/same format and definig the null value and keeping the files in the same crs (raster/conversion/translate(convert format))

comment How to clip a lines vector layer to a polygon layer in QGIS?
why not trying to clip the raster file? take in to account that both layer must be in the same crs also.

comment Scale and Z factor have no effect on hillshade analysis in QGIS
When you are using a DEM with latlon coordinates in decimal degrees and vertical units in meters you have to set the scale (ratio of vertical units to horizontal units) to 111120. I tried with a couple of DEMs from Aster I have not a problem. This setting aplies not only to hillshading but also for slope calculations. Hope it helps
