What does the following mean, when I try to clip and save the result as a sqlite or other format?

Computed -srcwin falls outside raster size of 7807x4771

If you clip a raster on a vector layer, both must have the same coordinate reference system.

It is not enough to Set CRS for layer in QGIS, because clipping is an external command.

Best practice is to look up the CRS of the raster, then rightclick on the vector layer -> Save As ... , apply the CRS of the raster to a new shapefile, and add that to the canvas.

  • Ok, thanks. I think that I am only clipping a raster layer. I did have another vector layer over the top but have now removed it and...same message appears. Commented Jun 29, 2013 at 23:34

    Usually you clip a raster by a polygon vector layer, or enter bounding coordinates manually. Please explain in detail what you did. Perhaps you can upload your raster layer somewhere as well.
