Coastal protection profile generator

we try to run coastal protection models in Arcgis 10.1. The profile generator module doesn't run properly with the Belize and Vancouver example datasets and we get always the same error:

any suggestion?!


  • Hello,

    I don't know the answer to this question. I would imagine that you might be missing some Arc functionalities, but not sure. I'll ask our GIS expert.

    In the meantime, just to make sure, you installed all the Python Marine Extensions that are required by the tool?

    This looks like a problem with your system and not the model. Please check that all the Python extensions are properly installed and that you don't have multiple versions of Python installed on your PC. Also, make sure that the Spatial Analyst extension for ArcGIS is activated. If the PG still doesn't work, I would suggest trying another computer. Sometimes multiple installs of ArcGIS and Python on one PC will result in conflicts when the model tries to call the python extensions.
