Purpose of subregions shapefile in HRA

DougDoug Administrator, NatCap Staff
What is the purpose of the subregions shapefile in HRA? Can I create random polygons or is there something in particular I should be designing around?

Hoping @karkema can help me out here! Question came from @Luinil

Thanks all!

    Hi Doug & @Luinil

    The subregions shapefile is only used for summarizing outputs, it does not impact the risk score calculations. The shapefile can contain one big polygon, or multiple polygons that might represent planning zones, for example.

    Exposure, Consequence, & Risk scores for each habitat and stressor are averaged across each subregion. See the "Subregions_Averaged_Results" hmtl file in outputs/HTML_Plots folder.

    @karkema - please correct me if I missed something!
