I can't find the example model "contours from points" in QGIS 2.6. Is there another tool for creating contours from points, besides the QGIS Contour plugin?

  • Please clarify what you are looking for. What's the problem with the "contours from points" model?

  • Try removing the .qgis2 folder in your home directory. You should see the example model then.

  • Tried it, and still the Models in the Processing Toolbox says "0 geoalgorithm"

  • There should be a Contour script in the Processing toolbox if you are using the latest version. Try that. It seems like the model was removed, it's not in the source github.com/qgis/QGIS-Processing/tree/master/models

there is a contour-plugin, which you can load via plugin-manager. additional infos here: https://github.com/ccrook/QGIS-Contour-Plugin

  • Thanks Kurt. I'm familiar with this plugin, but the contours it creates are not as smooth as the ones created by the model.

You're talking about the Contour Lines From Points model. I still have 2.4, I saved it for you as a .model

Link to Dropbox

  • +1, thanks for sharing the model. Seems a few people have this missing.
