In the toolbar you can find the most common tasks. See table below for information on different buttons and their functionality.
The Data Sources panel lists the data in your current project, comparable to the Layers panel in QGIS. The following data types and their corresponding metadata are available:
File size: Metadata on resolution and extent of the raster
CRS: Shows Coordinate Reference System (CRS) information
Bands: Information on overall number of bands as well as band-wise metadata such as name, class or wavelength (if available)
Depending on the type, raster layers will be listed with different icons:
- for default raster layers (continuous value range)
- for mask raster layers
- for classification raster layers
Also see section on data types for further information.
- File size: Shows the file size and extent of the vector layer
- CRS: Shows Coordinate Reference System (CRS) information
- Features: Information on number of features and geometry types
- Fields: Attribute information, number of fields as well as field names and corresponding datatype
- File size: Size of the file on hard disk
- Profiles: Shows the number of spectra in the library
Buttons of the Data Sources panel:
- If you want to remove all layers at once, right-click in the Data Sources panel and and select Remove all DataSources
- The EnMAP-Box also supports Tile-/Web Map Services (e.g. Google Satellite or OpenStreetMap) as a raster layer. Just add them to your QGIS project as you normally would, and then click the Synchronize Data Sources with QGIS button. Now they should appear in the data source panel and can be added to a Map View.
The Data Views panel organizes the different windows and their content. You may change the name of a Window by double-clicking onto the name in the list.

Map Window ¶
The map window allows you to visualize raster and vector data. It is interactive, which means you can move the content or zoom in/out.
- In order to add a new Map Window click the Open a Map Window button. Once you added a
Map Window, it will be listed in the
- Add layers by either drag-and-dropping them into the Map Window (from the Data Sources list) or right-click onto the layer
- You can also directly create a new Map Window and open a layer by right-clicking the layer
Activate the crosshair by right-clicking into a Map Window and select
You can alter the style of the crosshair by right-clicking into a Map Window and select
Text Window ¶
The processing toolbox is basically the same panel as in QGIS. Here you can find all EnMAP-Box processing algorithms listed under EnMAP-Box. In case it is closed/not visible you can open it by clicking the button in the menubar or .
See QGIS Documentation - The toolbox for further information.
Cursor Location Values¶
This tools lets you inspect the values of a layer or multiple layers at the location where you click in the map view. To select a location (e.g. pixel or feature) use the Select Cursor Location button together with the Identify cursor location value option activated and click somewhere in the map view.
- The Cursor Location Value panel should open automatically and list the information for a selected location. The layers will be listed in the order they appear in the Map View. In case you do not see the panel, you can open it via .
- By default, raster layer information will only be shown for the bands which are mapped to RGB. If you want to view all bands, change the Visible setting to All (right dropdown menu). Also, the first information is always the pixel coordinate (column, row).
- You can select whether location information should be gathered for All layers or only the Top layer. You can further define whether you want to consider Raster and Vector layers, or Vector only and Raster only, respectively.
- Coordinates of the selected location are shown in the x and y fields. You may change the coordinate system of the displayed coordinates via the Select CRS button (e.g. for switching to lat/long coordinates).
