(1) How to create a multiband raster from a set of single band rasters (except when somebody talks about doing a r.composite).

I attempted creating a raster3D and it turned out that it is not possible to display it with the GUI.

(2) How to subset a raster dataset (at least I do not see a direct command for doing so)

Edit (following the comment to my humble question): If my observations are wrong, please let me know the answer to these questions.

  • This question does not appear to be about geographic information systems (GIS) within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Welcome to gis.SE. This a Q&A site, not a support forum. Do you have a question? If not, perhaps you really just wanted to raise a bug report for QGIS? – BradHards Sep 6 '13 at 7:19
  • OP has arrived at conclusions that GRASS GIS can't do certain things without sufficient research. He/she could have asked how to perform such operations using GRASS GIS (particularly for 2nd conclusion). – Chethan S. Sep 7 '13 at 11:57

  • It looks like you are trying to ask two distinct questions so my recommendation is to focus on the one which is most important to you and remove the other into a separate Question. – PolyGeo Sep 10 '13 at 9:10

Re 1) Where should the multiband information come from if you have only a single band? In case, there is the "#" operator in r.mapcalc to pseudo-split singleband data.

Re 2) Of course you can subset raster map (again, with r.mapcalc). See also http://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Computational_region

  • OOPS! I meant creating a multiband raster from a set of single band rasters. I have reworded the question accordingly. – Indian Sep 10 '13 at 8:45
  • Ok, easy: create a "group" with i.group of the maps to be put into the multilayer GeoTIFF (or other multilayer format). Then export to that format with "r.out.gdal input=group output=multilayer.tif". Voilà... – markusN Sep 10 '13 at 21:00
