I'm trying to clip a heightmap to a small area that I'm interested in. When I attempt to use Raster > Extraction > Clipper I get an error dialog with the message ""Computed -srcwin falls outside raster size of..." with the dimensions.

I tried to select a smaller area but continue to get the error message and am not sure what it's complaining about and how to resolve the issue so I can clip the heightmap.

What am I doing wrong or need to adjust?

It seems a SRS problem. What's the coordinate reference system of your project? Your x coordinates seem wrong.

    Looks like the project was set to Google Mercator 900913 while my raster and vectors are at WGS 84. I switched the project to WGS 84 (with on-the-fly checked) and the clipper works now. Thanks! Commented Feb 11, 2012 at 22:00
