Coastal Vulernability model error: No exposed shoreline segments found.
I've been running the Coastal Vulnerability model (version 3.4.2) with sample data from InVEST and I keep getting the following error: "No exposed shoreline segments found. This could be from a too-high depth threshold or a too-low exposure proportion." I opened the sample data in ArcGIS. All of the files look like they are in the correct location, but the coordinate systems are mixed.
I converted them all to NAD 1983 UTM Zone 10, except for Structures_BarkClay.shp. I was unable to open this in ArcGIS, and upon closer inspection, I saw that it did not have a .dbf file. I checked previous versions of InVEST (all the way back to 3.0) and could not find a .dbf file. I also checked a colleague's machine with version 3.5.0, and the .dbf is not there either. I'm wondering if this is the source of the error or it's something else. I am able to run the model with the Structures field left blank, but it gives the same error.
Is it possible to get an updated Structures shapefile with the .dbf included? I'm hoping this plus having everything in the same projected coordinate system will fix the error, but if it doesn't, are there other places where I may be going astray?
