Population Vulnerability Index
Coastal Vulnerability model calculates the exposure index, which doesn't include Population data.
It also gives us a raster of population count along the coast.
I wanted to calculate population vulnerability index. So, I converted this population raster to points and then I joined it with the coastal exposure points.shp. Then I calculated PVI using field calculator. Before that I reclassified population raster into 5 ranks before converting to points. The formula I used was
Is this the correct method to incorporate population into exposure index.
Sorry if I am asking too many questions.
Thank you in advance.
