Does anyone know if it is possible to get the Identify Features tool in QGIS to show the band values for all the layers shown in the results window?

To clarify, whilst I have several bands "showing" in the results window, the actual values for all but the topmost layer are folded away.

Having to unfold the info each time I click on a new location is getting pretty tiresome.

  • I don't think this is possible with the Identity features tool. Maybe you can make a feature request for it at the QGIS bugtracker hub.qgis.org/projects/quantum-gis/issues – Curlew Apr 4 '13 at 10:42
  • I wasn't too optimistic. It's not a major omission, just a peculiarity so I'm not sure whether time and effort should really be put in to addressing this. – mercergeoinfo Apr 4 '13 at 11:25

You can use the Raster Value Tool to do this.

  • I think it does provide an answer, but only barely. It should have more details -- an outline of how the tool works or what it does, a link to documentation or help page, etc. – Erica Feb 5 '15 at 11:55
  • I'd say this IS the answer for this question. – Germán Carrillo Feb 5 '15 at 12:49
