I am not able to find the Raster Calculator in my process toolbox anymore, even though I worked with the Raster Calculator through the toolbox in the same version of QGIS (2.8) one month ago.

It wouldn't matter much because I still can run the raster calculator in the raster menu, However I have a problem in the Graphical Modeler because I need to use this algorithm and it is not available in the GDAL/OGR group.

Any ideas?

Have you tried to search of Raster Calculator in the processing toolbox? It should be under GDAL -> Miscellaneous. Also under SAGA -> Grid - Calculus. Make sure you select the advanced interface.

  • Of course, that was de way I used to find the Raster Calculator. I allways have found it in Miscellanius inside GDAL/OGR group. Now I just find the SAGA one, but it not have the same interface. Could be the updated of Processing Plugin? May 20, 2016 at 8:21
  • Actually, I have both QGIS 2.8.9 and 2.14.2, and I have raster calculator in both Miscellaneous and SAGA. I normally download QGIS from OSGeo4W. That is why, I did not face this issue. Also, the processing plugin that I have is up to date.

  • Try to update your QGIS to 2.8.9 LTR which is more stable from OSGeo4W, and check if the update can solve the issue that you have.

  • Thank you very much¡¡¡¡. I have reinstalled the GDAL/OGR libraries and command through the OSGeo4W Installer in web and now the Raster Calculator appears again¡¡¡. May 20, 2016 at 9:00

Have a look under Processing > Options if GDAL/OGR is activated. enter image description here

Which version of Processing do you have installed? It should be at 2.12.2 now I think...

  • Thanks for your quick answers¡¡¡. GDAL/OGR is active in Processing Options. The version of Processing I have installed it is 2.10.3, but it is said in the plugin interface that this is the version available in the Qgis repository. I dont Know, maybe the spanish version I have? May 20, 2016 at 8:37
  • The language version should not matter. Check in the plugin settings whether you are getting the plugins for version 2.14. My guess is that you are getting plugins for version 2.8 in your 2.14 install since both installs are on the same system, no?
