I am struggling with one thing in the raster calculator in GRASS GIS 7: I want to create a raster_b from raster_a, with raster_a values between >=-0.15 and <=0.15. The raster containing values <-0.15 I calculated with if("raster_a" >0.05 , raster_b, null()),

but how do If((raster_a >-0.15) and (raster_a <0.15), raster_b, null))?

Any help is appreciated! Peter

  • I can't say for sure, because I don't use GRASS, but if it's calculator is like the one in Whitebox GAT then, your statement would have to be: If(AND((raster_a >-0.15), (raster_a <0.15)), raster_b, null))

The formulation is (for GRASS 6.x and GRASS 7):

if expression = True -> value of raster_a  
if expression = False -> nothing (null())


resulting_layer = (expression, True, False)


raster_b = (if..., raster_a, null())
  • In the GRASS shell:

    r.mapcalc 'raster_b = if(raster_a > -0.15 && raster_a <0.15 ,raster_a,null())'

  • with the Raster Map Calculator:

  • Gene, thank you - that is the solution! Highly apprieciated!
