# coastal vulnerability model error

There are many errors that are causing difficulties.

Attach the following log files :

Let me know what the problem is.

I beg you.

Thank you, Dave.

I also unified the coordinate system(GCS_WGS_1984), expecting it to be a coordinate system problem.

Then another error occurred.

Is this also a coordinate system problem?

(with units of degrees) when it needs to have a projected coordinate

system (with units of meters). This needs to be more clear in our

documentation. The "cell_size" parameter is described to have units of

meters, but in reality it has units that match the units of the AOI

shapefile coordinate system. So in your example, that means a cell size

of 100 with a decimal degree coordinate system will instruct the model

to create a raster with cells 100 degrees wide! That resulted in a

raster with 0 cells, and eventually raised the error you saw.

solution is to project the AOI shapefile to a coordinate system that

uses meters for units (such as a UTM system). Then specify the cell_size

in meters, as you have done. You should not need to re-project all of

your other data sources, the model will do that for you by transforming

all the other input data to match the AOI coordinate system.
