I am having issues importing an SRTM HGT file into Grass. I first made a new location as the instructions from this Grass Newsletter Tutorial states. I then went to the download site and downloaded the file to my desktop. Inside GRASS, I went to
File > Import raster data > SRTM HGT import [r.in.srtm]
I choose the filename of the .hgt.zip file and remove the extension .hgt.zip (as the instructions say).
The statement looks like this:
The following is the output that I'm getting:
Extracting 'C:\Users\Joe\Desktop\N47E007'... Converting input file to BIL... mv: cannot stat `C:\\Users\\Joe\\Desktop\\N47E007.hgt': No such file or directory ERROR 4: `C:\Users\Joe\Desktop\N47E007.bil' does not exist in the file system, and is not recognised as a supported dataset name. rmdir: C:\Users\Joe\Documents\grassdata/demolocation/PERMANE NT/.tmp/8120.0: Directory not empty ERROR: Unable to import data
At the beginning of the script, the file is definitely there because the program recognizes it and starts converting it. Once it produces an error, I notice the file has been moved to another directory
What can I do to fix this problem? Thanks!
