Then I used QGIS to get a DEM but I got this error:

I see that it is an encoding problem and I don't know what do I have to do. Please help me :)

  • The error comes from your path \Users\LOC~1. What is LOC~1 ? – gene Dec 18 '16 at 17:14
  • I forgot that... my name is Loïc, is it easy to change my user name on Windows ? – Loïc Poncin Dec 18 '16 at 17:25
  • Sorry, I don't use Windows – gene Dec 18 '16 at 17:28
  • You can create a new user, without special characters. But you will loose mails, favourites and passwords. So don't delete the old one until you are sure to have migrated everything. – AndreJ Dec 18 '16 at 18:43

Thanks to the comments I saw that this issue is due to my user name on windows which has an accent Loïc. I changed it.
