In QGIS 1.8 I have two rasters derived from the same multi-band tif image

  1. ndvi - each pixel contains NDVI values. Using /Plugin/Analysis Point Sampling tool a new vector layer is created and the NDVI values of selected pixels are saved in the attribute table of this new layer. All is OK here.
  2. geo a georeferenced raster of the same multi-band photo

How do I get the coordinates of the same pixels from raster (2) geo?

I would like to store them into the same attribute table where the NDVI values are.

How to get Shapefile point coordinates into .xls?

Following the directions in the above post, merely @vector layer containing the (NDVI, these may be different) values of the selected pixels go to

Vector>Geometry Tools>Export/Add Geometry columns enter the vector layer containing, the attribute table where the coordinates are to be added. click OK. This attribute table reads two new columns now, e.g.

wkt_geom riba-ndvi- XCOORD YCOORD

POINT(8378.111080 -1838.011980) 0.25517 8378.11108 -1838.01198

POINT(8378.111080 -1758.011980) 0.30189 8378.11108 -1758.01198

POINT(3178.111080 -5558.011980) 0.19718 3178.11108 -5558.01198

some further clarification is required How do XCOORD YCOORD relate to lati/long? When the original multi-band raster is georeferenced 4 pixels are selected from the canvas and the coordinates are selected from the multi-band *.tif raster. All thety look like

X=25.6341644 Y=42.2355833

These are real coordinates showing the exact location of the object.
