Can QGIS 2.4 follow Linux soft links?
I want to add a number of raster layers from a store of NED30m elevation data, and thought I'd do it by creating a collection of softlinks in one directory to the elevation files nested in the store.
However, when I try to add a layer from one of the links, QGIS 2.4 complains:
Raster layer: somepath/elev_ned30m_links/n46w105.adf is not a supported raster data source
n46w105.adf is the result of a linux
ln -s command:
ln -s /Mapstore/ned30m/grid/n46w105_1/w001001.adf
QGIS will open
w001001.adf just fine if approached directly, but that means digging down into each tile's directory structure, while the softlinks can be created programmatically with a script.
