Marine spatial planning helper tools

gverutesgverutes Moderator, NatCap Staff
Greetings Nat Cap community,
We are putting the finishing touches on a custom InVEST installer with marine spatial planning (MSP).  In the meantime, we have created a helper tool kit for using ArcGIS and InVEST for MSP.  The download for this Arctoolbox comes with documentation, step-by-step guidance and sample data.  We plan to refactor the more popular tools to our open source platform.  Please give them a try and let us know your favorite!


InVEST Helper Tools for MSP
These tools were created to help automate common InVEST pre- and post-processing functions done in ArcGIS.   All tools were coded for ArcGIS 10.0 and should work for versions 9.3 through 10.2
1) Erase – Erase the shape of one polygon shapefile from another.
2) Area Zones of Human Use – Calculates total area within planning regions for a directory of human activity layers.
3) Adjust Area of Functional Habitat – Calculates “functional” area of habitats within planning regions based on low, medium or high risk scores from the InVEST Habitat Risk Assessment (HRA) model.___
