What raster format should I use to create viewsheds in QGIS using the grass r.los plugin? I am using the Ordnance Survey Opendata DTM (tried both ascii and shapefile formats) and srtm geotiffs but when I run r.los I can't select an input raster - does that mean the raster is the wrong format?

  • In case you didn't know, you first have to import the ascii or geotiff into GRASS with r.in.gdal, r.in.xyz, etc. – Micha Aug 19 '12 at 19:33

It works here with OS OpenData *.asc rasters. QGIS Master, Ubuntu 12.04 running GRASS r.los from the Sextante toolbox. N.
