When creating a new GeoTIFF heatmap, the Heatmap module uses a .tif extension. Please use .tiff. .tif is a holdover from the DOS 8.3 filename days.

  • Resolution set to upstream
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

The default file extension for a format is taken from the GDAL metadata for that format. Unfortunately, for GeoTiff GDAL's extension is "tif" (see line 9943 in frmts/gtiff/geotiff.cpp in the GDAL source). Can you please file this on GDAL's tracker (http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/report), and report the response back here?

Done: http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/5124. The line number was a little different in trunk.
