comment How to generate a shapefile containing an UTM grid (graticule)?
It actually worked with version 1.7.4 by entering 1000 as parameter (But it's buggy because after entering 1000 it displayed a much bigger value). What surprised me it that the resulting shapefile is much smaller that with SAGA GIS (less than 500KB against 50MB for a 800x1000km area...)

comment How to generate a shapefile containing an UTM grid (graticule)?
I tried with QGIS 1.6.0. I will download the current version 1.7.4 and try again. But in the window I could only enter the min and max value and no distance between the lines, so I doubt it will work for my purposes as I need 1000 or 2000m as grid distance.

comment How to generate a shapefile containing an UTM grid (graticule)?
Thanks again, it's working! I've simply generated a graticule with 1000m as distance on X and Y and export it as shapefile. Then I've assigned the coordinate system of the corresponding UTM zone to the shapefile using ogr2ogr (for example EPSG:32601 for zone 01 with WGS 84 as ellipsoid) and I have exactly what I need. I will try to make a step by step description later.

comment How to generate a shapefile containing an UTM grid (graticule)?
Thanks. I hadn't heard from SAGA GIS before. I have just made a quick try. I was at least able to generate a simple graticule. I haven't yet found if it is possible to select UTM coordinates, but I will try again another day. It seems promising.

Thanks. When I try it, QGIS freezes and I don't get anything. I might try again later if I have more chance.
