Converting geotiff to IDF

Hi there,
My topography is in Geotiff. Before I start converting that to an ESRI raster file and import that in IDF: is there a better suggestion to convert geotiff files to IDF straight away?

Hi Rogier,
I moved this thread to the Category: iMOD-GUI --> User Questions.
From there everyone can read it and subscribed users get a message.
Kind regards,
Frans

Hi Rogier,

iMOD cannot read geotiff-formats. Instead you have two options, a) create a gridfile (*.asc) out of it and import it in iMOD, or even better I believe, create a normal TIFF out of it and add a world-file to it, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_file. Be aware that rotated background images are not supported in iMOD.

Good luck,

Greetings,

Thanks Peter,
I converted the tiff to .asc and then read it. Easy!
