I downliaded a SD file from here: http://portal.emodnet-hydrography.eu/geographic-grid How can I open it in QGIS?


Why not download the GeoTiff format? That can easily be opened by QGIS.

If depth is required then why not use the .asc format? That can easily be opened in QGIS:

  • Fledermaus file format is probably more feature rich for that kind of data. – user30184 Mar 23 '15 at 18:14
  • Fledermaus is SD? – HeikkiVesanto Mar 24 '15 at 11:47
  • In the portal there is a button Help which shows SD files: The SD files can be viewed in the QPS 3D Fledermaus application or in the iView4D viewer, which is available as a free download Link is broken but you can find more information from qps.nl/display/main/home. – user30184 Mar 24 '15 at 12:04
  • @vesanto, the Tiff has no depth (Z) values and i was hoping the SD has. – H.Wiener Mar 24 '15 at 12:29

    The netcdf file also has the depth as a subdataset. You have to use gdal_translate -a_ullr to get the picture in the right place. – AndreJ Mar 24 '15 at 16:33
