Adding functions to the QGIS toolbox

The graphical modeler is a great way to automate tasks, using the routines in the QGIS toolbox. However, what to do if you need a function not available in the toolbox? In that case you may want to look into writing your own script.

Open source tools

Programs like R and GRASS GIS are incredible powerfull. But occasionally you'll need a functionality that is not available yet. Luckily, depending on the kind of functionality, it isn't terribly difficult to create your own scripts. In the past years I have created a few scripts that I hope are useful to others as well.
