I clipped a TIFF file using gdal warp, but it is not giving out any output clipped raster. I need help in finding why it does this and how to correct this.

import gdal



I updated the gdal version based on the idea given here at stack exchange. Now new problem - the output clipped raster has 0 in it completely, it is just blank.

  • Works for me with the data from your previous question from osgeo import gdal ras_in=gdal.Open('montreal_500m.tif') shp_in="Montreal_buffer.json" ras_out='out.tif' result=gdal.Warp(ras_out,ras_in,cutlineDSName=shp_in,cropToCutline=True,dstNodata=0). Does your shapefile intersect with your raster? You seem to use an old syntax in import gdal. Is your GDAL version old as well? The current version is 3.6.0.

  • @user30184 Great I updated gdal my version and it works and gives an output. But a new error pops up where the output has no data; it is completely blank.

  • @user30184 As you suggested the shapefile didn't intersect with the raster hence the output was blank. Managed to get the proper output. Thanks!

from osgeo import gdal


result = gdal.Warp(srcDSOrSrcDSTab  = ras_in, 
                   destNameOrDestDS = ras_out, 
                   cutlineDSName    = shp_in,
                   cropToCutline    = True,
                   dstNodata        = 0)
result = None

### You don't need to use  '''gdal.Open'''
  • Thanks, I corrected it.

Firstly, my gdal version was an older one and secondly, the shapefile and then the raster did not intersect, which is why the error occurred.
