I have a point shapefile that has a field AEP_fuzz and I want to convert to a raster. The field type is double and I get the following error: enter image description here

GDAL command: gdal_rasterize -l INPUT -a AEP_fuzz -tr 25.0 25.0 -a_nodata 0.0 -te 260332.3116 6033180.9488 271585.3921 6044263.9006 -ot Float32 -of RST C:/Users/Matthew/AppData/Local/Temp/processing_lZvSiH/3ea68677900f401b92d690a50d953713/INPUT.gpkg C:/Users/Matthew/AppData/Local/Temp/processing_lZvSiH/367a084fbc1840deb5a6c730e616ed52/OUTPUT.rst GDAL command output: ERROR 1: Failed to find field AEP_fuzz on layer INPUT, skipping.

Loading resulting layers Algorithm 'Rasterize (vector to raster)' finished

  • The name of the input layer is "AEP Hapitat Map Fuzzy Map", isn't it? Does it appear between double quotes in the generated request? Or is "INPUT" really the layer name that is used in the command?

  • You are correct. It was a temporary file I was trying to rasterize. I saved the file to disk before rasterization and it now works. Thank you.

Cannot perform rasterization on a temporary output. Save to disk then perform rasterization.
