GDALTools - Grid: allow for more control of the output
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||fixed|

Currently the GDALTools - Grid option allows for selection of the input and output file names, selection of the z field value, and tweaking the algorithm used for interpolation parameters. It would be great if the user could also set other general options, mainly the output size and extents. As these options already exist in the underlying gdal_grid utility, they shouldn't be too hard to implement. And they are very useful for controlling the overall grid generation process

The format of GDAL Tools only allows for a relatively small number of options. It is probably more important for many users to be able to define the geographic limits and pixel size of output grid than multiple parameters for interpolation process.
An alternative might be to allow interactive editing of the command line generated by GDAL tools in the bottom window of the dialogue. Experienced users could add extra GDAL commands in this area.
