PKTools for Processing

Integrates PKTools into QGIS Processing framework.

PKTools is a suite of GDAL-based utilities written in C++ for image processing with a focus on remote sensing applications.


Plugin published in my repository.


Once installed and enabled, PKTools for Processing is registered as a Processing provider. You may need to configure the provider before using its tools. Open QGIS options from menu "Settings → Options" and go to the "Processing" tab. Expand the "Providers" group and find "pktools" sub-group, here you will find all settings related to the PKTools provider.

PKTools settings

It is necessry to tell the plugin where to find pktools executables. If this setting is not set, the plugin will assume that corresponding location was already added to the PATH environment variable and the tools accessible by name. When done, save settings by pressing "OK".

If plugin is activated, it will add its algorithms to the Processing toolbox under the "pktools" group.

PKTools in the toolbox

These tools can be used as any other Processing algorithm: as a standalone tool, in batch processes, in models and scripts. Please refer to the QGIS User Guide to learn how to use Processing tools.

Documentation for pktools tools can be found at its homepage.
