Type of Area

Hi Sir / Madam

I am trying to map ecosystem services (Water yield and Sediment delivery ratio) for the area of 30 to 40 sq km. Is that possible using InVEST?

    Hi @Manimozhi -

    Yes, I think that you can model that small of an area with these models. In order to have enough detail to make the results useful, and interesting spatially, you will need to find input data that is of a fairly fine resolution. Often land cover data and elevation can be found at fine resolution, but climate and soil data are usually coarse, and you may find that there is little to no differentiation across your area. Maybe you are lucky and have great local data?
