Hi, hope someone can help.

I am planning on using QGIS for my dissertation and am in the planning
stages of the proposal. I currently have a lightmap data set available for
download with 12 files for the year I'm interested in. My problem is that

a raster layer, the QGIS software once I click add and as expected go to
set my WGIS co-ords closes down with no reason.

Within the video I am using, it has GMT Net cdf grid format (*nc *.NC),
while my laptop is showing the GMT Net cdf grid format. Could this be the
problem? When I look at the 2 files I have downloaded so far the type is
NC. My supervisor has told me to stick with QGIS and to sort out the

Hoping someone can help me troubleshoot the problem, I previously used Q
during a summer course to learn the software and in loading maps so unsure
why I’m having issues with a raster layer.
