This question already has an answer here:
I'm new to using QGIS. I have purchased some LiDAR data which downloads as .asc format, is there a way to analyse the terrain slope angle from this data or does it need to be converted into DEM? Ideally I would like to display the steeper slope angles (>35 degrees) as a different colour to the shallower (less steep) slope angles.
I'm using QGIS 2.0 Dufour on windows vista platform.
