Spatial data processing framework that brings advanced analysis capabilities to QGIS.

The Processing Toolbox is activable from Processing > Toolbox. It contains all the available algorithms, divided into predefined groups:

  • QGIS geoalgorithms;
  • GDAL/OGR;
  • GRASS GIS7;
  • Models;
  • Orfeo Toolbox (Image analysis);
  • R scripts;
  • SAGA;
  • Scripts;
  • TauDEM (hydrologic analysis);
  • Tools for LiDAR data.

Some of these groups represent algorithms from third-party applications, while others contain algorithms directly coded as part of the processing plugin, not relying on any additional software.
