plugin for importing ECW image

Asked by 1 year ago
I have installed qgis v1.8.02 on a computer running Windows 7 professional 64-bitand wanting to import a *.ecw file into qgis. I have downloaded /ECWJP2SDKSetup_RO_20100920.exe and installed it but the next step presents a bit of a problem as I do not have /C:\OSGeo4W\. How do I proceed? *-- Tschüß Tony Meissner laroona.env01 [ at ] bigpond.com Tel: +61 8 8587 6248 Mob: +61 0401 124 971 Laroona Environmetrics PO Box 1102 Loxton SA 5333 Australia abn:93 445 747 930*

Following this note: <http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/ECW> <http://osgeo-org.1560.x6.nabble.com/RE-ECW-td4646269.html> the old 3.3 version used in QGIS Lisboa standalone still should work. ECW should be listed under Settings -> Options, GDAL tab. At least for me, but not in the OSGeo4W version built against the newset ECW SDK. I don't have installed the SDK, but gdal_ECW_JP2ECW.dll dated 25.03.2012 in folder \QuantumGis\bin\gdalplugins\1.9 HTH, André Joost

1) from this archive (http://goo.gl/XiG21) copy gdal_ECW_JP2ECW into C:\OSGeo4W\bin\gdalplugins\1.9 directory. 2) copy all other dll of previous archive in C:\OSGeo4W\bin and C:\Windows\System32 directories don't ask me why but it works! this is valid, obviously fo sure in windows; i don't know for other O.S. it works for brand new installation of qgis via osgeo4w both for 1.8 version and dev. version

Thanks for the help given and after a bit of try and see, I managed to get qgis v1.8 to red ECW files. The advice given in http://www.faunalia.com/content/adding-ecw-support-quantum-gis was what did the trick. *-- Tschüß Tony Meissner laroona.env01 [ at ] bigpond.com Tel: +61 8 8587 6248 Mob: +61 0401 124 971 Laroona Environmetrics PO Box 1102 Loxton SA 5333 Australia*
