No Invest toolbox for GIS in download

Hi all, I would like to run the SDR model through arcmap. I have
followed the step by step instructions listed here (including
uninstalling and reinstalling)

However, I only have a toolbox for the coastal protection model and the
invest_helpertools_arc10. Where can I find the general invest toolbox
for all of the tools? I am running arcmap 10.4.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Amelia -

    The InVEST tools no longer run in ArcGIS, they are standalone applications. When you install them, you'll find the tools in your Windows Start menu, under the folder "InVEST 3.3.3 x86".

  • Thanks! Are there instructions anywhere for how to run the models using python? I want to run the model with several different rasters so I would like to automate. However, when I export the script to python and try to run it, it seems to not be able to talk to and operate the model.

    Hi @meals620, executing batch runs of InVEST will take a little different setup, but once you get it running, the process can be pretty slick.  The most useful guide at the moment is in our API docs:
