I am trying to run QGIS 3.6 on a Mac with the latest OS.

I have the following gdal error message:

>>>>>>> gdalwarp -of GTiff -tr 250.00115934006 -250.00168180475995 -tap
>>>>>>> -cutline "/Users/Laura/Documents/2019 Adjusted Maps/CA Base Map

>>>>>>> GDAL command output:

I have applied all the steps found on Kyngchaos.com, but it still isn't working

I think there may be a problem with this pathway but I am unsure which part needs to be fixed. Any suggestions?

    I believe GDAL doesn't like filepaths with spaces in them. (Source: I vaguely remember seeing it mentioned in a comment on GIS SE.) Try outputting directly to the documents folder (/Users/Laura/Documents) instead of /Users/Laura/Documents/2019 Adjusted Maps/NLCD adjusted. You might also need to move your input files. – csk Jul 17 at 18:16
  • I believe the new installers are better than the old Kyngchaos ones - qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html – Ian Turton Jul 17 at 19:32
  • Thank you for your help. I fixed all file pathways to delete spaces. Now QGIS crashes. – user146342 Jul 18 at 16:00
  • Do you think there is a problem with this command having a space before "Frameworks"??? /Library/ Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/2.3/Programs: – user146342 Jul 18 at 16:02
