When I open a raster file in QGIS (for example a GeoTiff file), I want to quickly check the value of a clicked raster cell. I found there's an 'identify' tool in the toolbar, but when I click with identify I only see a value (Derived) (Clicked coordinate) Band 1

Is there any tool in QGIS to quickly inspect the value of any clicked raster cell?

  • The identify tool should show also the pixel value of each band in the value field. Try with some other images. Don't you get the values from any? – user30184 Nov 1 '14 at 13:12
  • The identify tool only shows "Band 1" but no value. maybe it's a bug in QGIS 2.4? – jirikadlec2 Nov 1 '14 at 18:42
  • It can be. Put a small sample image for download and write to qgis-users mailing list about the issue. If someone else can reproduce your problem the next step is to make a bug report. – user30184 Nov 2 '14 at 10:26

Install the Value Tool plugin. It will display pixel values as you move the pointer around the screen.

Once installed, you will have a Value Tool panel docked and you enable the tool by a checkbox:
