I have some Python code that makes Raster Attribute Tables for GeoTiffs using GDAL.

In ArcGIS I can see these attribute tables fine and they behave how I like (as classifications) but in QGIS the whole concept of an attribute table seems to be missing.

Is there any way to access a RAT in QGIS?

    Would this feature request fill your needs? hub.qgis.org/issues/4321 – Giovanni Manghi Sep 6 '12 at 19:03
  • Yes that's exactly what I'm looking for. Surprised to see the comment "this suggestion comes from Arc* users". I'm new to the gis world, but seems like attribute tables with rasters are a useful feature. – Rich Sep 13 '12 at 17:23
  • @Rich Please post your your decision as an answer to this question and accept it. That way, people would know that this question has been answered. – R.K. Sep 18 '12 at 9:24
  • @R.K. The link points to a ticket to unimplemented feature request from a year ago. Do you think that would be helpful as a answer to this question? Happy to post if so. – Rich Sep 24 '12 at 21:30
  • I think so. It does answer your question right? At least they'd know that it hasn't been implemented yet. If somebody has a better answer, they'll post it anyway. – R.K. Sep 25 '12 at 3:43

This feature request might fill your needs: http://hub.qgis.org/issues/4321

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

  • If I understand correctly this feature still still doesn't exist? – kalakaru Mar 17 '16 at 8:27

    Yes, not yet implemented. Evidently is not something asked by many. – Giovanni Manghi Mar 17 '16 at 16:42
