I have a raster with ten field values.

In ArcGIS I can open and select one of the field values for symbology and it show me the values from that field.

How can I handle this in QGIS?

I share a picture for a better comprehension.

  • What format is your raster? Most raster formats don't have multiple field values like that.

  • i think this might be a paletted raster... try changing type of renderer (tipo de renderizador) to 'Paletted' (En paleta) and see if you get a list of values and labels?

    @StevenKay it's a raster with an attribute table. They are supported by ArcGIS and GDAL, but not by QGIS.

  • the_skua the format is .tiff, I edited the question and post an image with the six files it has. Jul 29 '16 at 17:01

You cannot access the attribute table of a raster in QGIS because until now building raster attribute table (RAT) is not supported in QGIS.

Unfortunately, QGIS lacks this feature compared to ArcGIS, and as @Luke indicated in his comment there is a question of Accessing raster attribute table in QGIS? and a request for this feature was already submitted, but it is still not yet implemented.

Therefore, you cannot have a list of attribute table in the symbology of QGIS similar to what you can get in ArcGIS because simply there is no attribute table associated with raster data in QGIS.
