SLD4raster (EN)

SLD4raster is a QGIS 2 plugin to generate OGC SLD (Styled Layer Descriptor) documents for raster layers. SLD documents are XML based documents and used for describing map layer styles. With this OGC specification, map layer styles could be shared between different GIS softwares. QGIS does not support yet SLD styles for raster layers but SLD4raster plugin meets this requirement.

SLD4raster has been developed with Python and distributed with GPL v2 license. You can reach the project on Github by visiting

This project is developed by Mehmet Selim BILGIN. You can contact with mselimbilgin[at]
