I want to convert a geoTIFF file into ESRI Grid Format (Arcinfo Binary Grid)using QGIS --Raster--Conversion---translate tool but I get a error message saying "creation parameters not defined". What is this and how to proceed next?

  • can you copy the content of the command line box and paste it into your question? – AndreJ Aug 27 '16 at 11:38
  • I had not used command line but doing it through GUI interface of QGIS 2.14.1 – user81524 Aug 27 '16 at 11:44
  • Yes, but the GUI writes the command in a textbox before you hit OK. The content of that box might lead to the reason of the error. – AndreJ Aug 27 '16 at 11:57
  • The error is ERROR 6: GDALDriver::Create() ... no create method implemented for this format. And the command is gdal_translate -of AIG M:/CCSM4_2.5_2070/CCSM4_2-5_2070_2.6tif/cc26bi701.tif M:/CCSM4_2.5_2070/CCSM4_2-5_2070_2.6tif/cc26bi701 – user81524 Aug 27 '16 at 12:19

From http://www.gdal.org/frmt_various.html:

AIG -- Arc/Info Binary Grid

Supported by GDAL for read access.

http://www.gdal.org/formats_list.html and Settings -> Options -> GDAL tell you the same.

So you are out of luck trying to write to that format. If you need to, you have to do the conversion with ESRI software.
