Is it possible to connect two points with fixed longitudinal slope over DEM terrain or connect points with maximum longitudinal slope? Make road line between two point, for example 7% or make it with maximum slope, for example 10%? Maybe somebody have some python code? (Qgis 2.14. essen) enter image description here

  • Maybe I misunderstood, but I do not need a least cost path. – nagib May 16 '16 at 6:49

    Yes you did. What you are talking about is a job for least cost analysis with cost being a function of slope – FelixIP May 16 '16 at 7:55
  • I want to design the road in range of longitudinal slope (grade) between 1%-10%. I dont need cheapest version. I tried with shortest path in ArcGIS, I get the shortest and cheapest results of roads, but I cannot to design road with that results, beacuse too many broken vertical alignment. Maybe You have an example? – nagib May 16 '16 at 8:58
