Does anyoe have a link to or know of a list of raster formats the above tool can work with? I'm on QGIS 2.8 using the latest version of the plugin.

I've tried a couple of different raster types and but have so far only had success on an .adf (ESRI grid) raster.

See my working example here: Performing viewshed analysis with Dutch AHN files in QGIS?.

It works for me with SRTM files the same way.


Ive just used ASTER generated satellite imagery (as a tif) and it worked fine. I found the trick was to only have the salient laters switched on. Hope that helps
