What is the configuration and extension (.txt, .csv ...) of the Pairwise comparisons table file requested by the SAGA AHP tool- Analytical Hierarchy Process - in QGIS? Are there examples of applications available?

1 Answer 1


As of today, working with SAGA through QGIS 2.18 Processing Toolbox would be safer than the latest QGIS 3 (I appreciate your [qgis-2] tag for that reason).

You can use any text format to create the Pairwise Comparisons Table, as far as it can be read by QGIS. I would suggest csv format, as I can just drag and drop it onto QGIS window.

(1) Create csv file;

Please make sure you have one header row, which indicates each input layer. Also note the order of the row (rows 2, 3, 4 in this example) should follow the same layer order. (I mean, row number 2 represents Layer1).

(2) Drag and drop the above csv file onto QGIS

(3) Start Analytical hierarchy process tool and;

(3A)....... select the layer in the order according to the table

(3B)....... select the table layer as the Pairwise Comparison Table.

then, Run the tool.

  • The Analytical Hierarchi Process tool with the suggested table worked fine in QGIS 2.14.18. On the other hand, in QGIS 2.18.27 the SAGA tool has responded: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'crs' See log for more details

  • @Sergio QGIS 2.18.27 works for me. Double check your workflow.

  • I understand that the table works fine in QGIS 2.18.27 as well. However, I noticed that in my machine several SAGA tools fail in QGIS 2.18.27, among them: raster calculator, analytical hierarchy process, reclassify values ... and so on. Always with the same answer: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'crs' See log for more details. I would appreciate it if you can help me with this problem too.

  • @Sergio Have you searched this site with [mac] [saga] tags? If you find no solution then you can post a new question.
