i am new in Saga Gis, i created grid- LS factor (from Rusle equation for erosis) in Saga gis and now i need to "put" it to Arcgis. How can i do this? I tried a lot of possibilities and none of them worked. Thanks
The easiest way is to export it as a geotiff. Modules>File>GDAL/OGR>GDAL:Export Raster to GeoTIFF. Just make sure that you add ".tif" to the end of your filename (see comments below). The geotiff format can be read directly by most GIS packages.
As Jay Guarneri mentionned, you can export to GeoTIFF using the
Import/Export - GDAL/OGR module and
GDAL: Export Raster to GeoTIFF which will create a TIF image.
Another nice way is to create a virtual raster that can be loaded in ArcGIS (verion 10 and above, I think). Virtual raster is essentially an xml file describing your raster and pointing to it. So it's not a copy, and if you update the original raster content, you'll update the vrt at the same time (except if you play with dimensions or projection). You go in
Import/Export - GDAL/OGR >
GDAL: Export Raster and set
Format option to Virtual Raster. It's the equivalent of
gdal_translate -of VRT in.sdat out.vrt
That way you can work on your raster in saga and you just need to reload it in ArcGIS to update. No need to export it every single time.
You don't have to convert. ArcGIS 10.3 supports
.sdat files out of the box.
