I created a polygon to use to clip a DTM raster (DEMTiff), but the Clip by Mask tool gives an error:

GDAL command:

gdalwarp -overwrite -of GTiff -cutline temp.shp -cl temp -crop_to_cutline "D:\\Nadar-Working\\Saxon Vista Circle\\SaxonVistaCanyon_1_DTM_final.tif" C:/Users/jeffc/AppData/Local/Temp/processing_VIkBPI/f414aad4007c4625bff642291be5ac6c/OUTPUT.tif

GDAL command output:

ERROR 1: Did not get any cutline features.

Process returned error code 1

  • Have you tried providing the full path to temp.shp?

  • Does ogrinfo list at least one polygon with ogrinfo temp.shp -al?

Make sure that the coordinate reference system (CRS) is the same for both the vector data and the raster data. Here is a link on warping your raster data to comply with your vector data. You can use gdalinfo yourfilehere or similarly ogrinfo yourfilehere to display and confirm the CRS of these data.
