Edit (TL;DR): As Gabriel De Luca pointed out in his answer there is an open GitHub ticket about the issue.

I would like to use "SRTM Downloader Plugin" with "QGIS 3.4" (OS: Win7, 64-bit).

Now if I start the plugin

QGIS start SRTM Downloader Plugin

and run it

run SRTM Downloader Plugin

by clicking on

  1. Set canvas extent and
  2. Download

nothing happens. According to a tutorial I must now set my credentials in a modal. But no modal pops up. And the process gets stuck.

I have tested the plugin and it is working fine in my machine.


One common way to download (SRTM among other) data is searching it in Earth Explorer site.

All the information about how to use the site is in their Help page.

If you want to download just that image, you can do it from the Download link provided in the following page:

  • Dear Gabriel, thank you. This is very strange. Any suggestions why I don't get the login modal. I guess you also don't have a clue, have you?

  • Hi Axel, No, I don't know, but I found an open ticket about that in the SRTM-Downloader GitHub repository. I have tested it in QGIS 3.4.14, Win10 64-bit machine. Commented Jan 26, 2020 at 1:31
