comment Open source/free software for generating a 3D view of mapping?
Hmmm. I think the whole thing appears to be geared towards visualising scientific data rather than easily outputting a good looking 3D view. Thank you for your suggestion though!

Am I correct in thinking this is some kind of command line tool?

Hmmm, QLandekarte doesn't like my OS TIFFS. It fails to load them.

Do either of those allow importing of raster data with tfw files for easy georeferencing?

comment How can I turn QGIS into a simple hiking planner?
Just found it! And I have converted to miles with a simple expression. Is there anyway to have QGIS do this automatically when the line is drawn? Or failing that, have a 'macro' that populates the columns accordingly on demand?

I have actually just partially solved this by creating a Virtual Raster of the whole 100km grid square, but I guess it would still be useful to know how to set the scale of one or two raster tiles.
