I have a raster in GRASS GIS and want to export it as a ASCII file following the ESRI format. This is my code

r.out.ascii --overwrite input=XX@PERMANENT output="...\XX.asc" null_value=-9999

The file generated has the following header

north: 3458710
south: 3454500
east: 353030
west: 348740
rows: 421
cols: 429

while the ESRI one is

NCOLS xxx
NROWS xxx
XLLCORNER xxx
YLLCORNER xxx
CELLSIZE xxx
NODATA_VALUE xxx

My only solution has been to manually edit the header, but i want to export multiple files thus the manual process becomes cumbersome. Does anyone know how to automatically export a raster from GRASS as an ESRI ASCII?

  • r.out.arc will do it in GRASS before version 7, use r.out.gdal in GRASS 7 or later. – Zoltan Feb 11 at 14:28

What you want is

r.out.gdal input=XX@PERMANENT output="...\XX.asc" format=AAIGrid
