Description

GDAL Rasterize in Processing requires the loading of an external file. It would be good if it would be possible to select one of the loaded layers.

"GDAL Rasterize in Processing requires the loading of an external file."

rasterizing over an existing raster layer is an option and not the default. The default is to have the vector be rasterized in a new raster layer. If the "writes values inside an existing raster layer" is chooses then the user needs just to point the output layer to an existing raster (a choice that has to be made anyway if the user do not want to get a temporary result layer).

  • Resolution deleted (invalid)
  • Status changed from Closed to Reopened

Use case: I create a blank raster (e.g. with one raster calc) that is loaded automatically. Now if I want to use it as an output raster for rasterization I have to search for it (in /tmp/, with non descriptive names).
It would be much easier and faster if the command would allow me to use the loaded blank raster.
