i'm trying to calculate the euclidean direction, in ArcGIS its very easy using the Euclidean Direction tool of Spatial Analyst but in QGIS i don't find how to do it.

Any tips for this in free software?

  • Link goes to Euclidean Direction, not Distance. Which one do you need? – mkennedy Mar 16 '15 at 22:41
  • The only thing I can suggest is to create an XYZ text file compliant with GDAL XYZ gdal.org/frmt_xyz.html which can be viewed as points or raster, calculate the distances as point features and then use GDAL_Translate to convert to another (better) image format. – Michael Stimson Mar 16 '15 at 22:41
  • Sorry, is euclidean direction. – Marco Uscuchagua Mar 16 '15 at 22:44
  • Thanks Michael, modify the XYZ text with a spreadsheet, but I had to put several conditions. Would be excellent if there is any especial plugin for this. – Marco Uscuchagua Mar 17 '15 at 1:53

  • Vector->Analysis Tools->Distance Matrix
  • Calculate just the nearest point
  • Join the two x/y pairs to your output file
  • The rest is just basic math in a right triangle
  • Solve them with an XYZ text, but thanks for your time. – Marco Uscuchagua Mar 17 '15 at 1:56
