I do not understand why I have this error while the model worked previously

    Hi @elsa,

    We've made significant changes to the InVEST 3.4.x version of the pollination model from 3.3.x. The technical issue you're experiencing is a change in the table formats. But we've made significant changes to the underlying science part of the pollination model. That includes but is not limited to

    • seasonal foraging activity for pollinators
    • relative abundance of pollinators if multiple guilds are provided
    • farms now specified by polygon rather than landcover code
    • per farm pollinator and nesting effecitveness
    • half saturation and pollinator dependence per farm
    We've rewritten large parts of the user's guide to reflect these changes and in particular you might want to look at the data needs section to see how we've changed the table formats:

    Also, here's a link to a power point that describes the differences between 3.3.x and 3.4.x pollination and its use:

    And please post again if we can help you further for whatever you need!
  • RichRich Administrator, NatCap Staff
    Hi @elsa again! I see from your log you're running InVEST 3.3.3! I missed that the first time. But otherwise my comments above apply to InVEST 3.4.1 and still hold for that. You can download the new version of InVEST here:
  • Thanks a lot for all these informations. This is indeed a very good step forward for the pollination model.
    However, I do not quite understand the difference (not the format but the sense) between the tables of biophysical land cover attribute and the vector "farm polygon"!
    thank you very much!
  • Now, the agricultural data is obligatory, which does not allow anymore to have only a supply in pollinator abundance or nesting, isn't it?
  • swolnyswolny Member, NatCap Staff
    Hi Elsa -

    The farm polygons are used for valuing pollinator contribution to crops. They allow you to specify where farms are located on the landscape, and provide farm-specific crop data that is independent from the land cover map. For each farm, you specify information about the crops grown there,how much each crop is dependent on pollinators, which season they need pollination, etc, as described in the User Guide

    Defining farms with separate polygons is an improvement over how the previous model worked, where farms weren't independent units with their own attributes, but were just another LULC class. We had to make a list of all of the LULC classes where agriculture was, and value wasn't really attributed to farms, but to agricultural LULC pixels. Now, value can be attributed to individual farms, and different farms can have different input parameters, which makes the model more flexible and relevant for crop production.

    The biophysical land cover is still used to set nesting and floral parameters for the different land cover types, and is required for the basic biophysical output of the model. It does seem to me that the farm polygon might be able to be an optional parameter, so you don't need to prepare one if you're not interested in valuing crop pollination, but just interested in the biophysical properties of the landscape. I'll let the model-creators speak to that topic. In the meantime, if you're not interested in valuing farm crops, you could always enter a generic polygon that covers the whole area and contains, say, one crop and values of 1 for everything in the input table, so that the valuation result doesn't mean anything but the biophysical portion will run.

    Hi @elsa, and also! It's possible to run the pollination model without a farm polygon in case you just want to see pollinator abundance. We just patched a bug in the last version of InVEST that incorrectly made farm polygons required, now they're optional in InVEST 3.4.2: 

  • Hi! 
    thank you very much for all this information, but now with the new version, using the guild files of the example, the model does not work ...Can you help me...??? (Im sorry for these basic questions...)

    Hi @Elsa, your error makes it look like you've got a semicolon delimited file rather than a comma delimited one. I've just been thinking about how to handle this better in InVEST. Can you dropbox me your complete datastack to I'd like to see if I can patch InVEST to handle semicolon separated values. Otherwise, can you try switching all the ";" to "," in your table and see if that works?
