Factor weight in Scenario Generator
I'm trying to use the Scenario Generator, and I would like to include the fact that conversion to oil palm [for example] will happen on predefined areas ( = oil palm permits issued by the government), quite independently of the current lulc. What is the best way to do it in your opinion ? I'm thinking that I could do that with factors for this single cover, using a raster layer with permits and high suitability in these areas. But then the factor weight should be 1. Is InVEST Scenario Generator still going to use transition likelihood matrix for the other land covers where there are no factors?
Thanks a lot for any advice or answer you might give me, I'm quite new at using InVEST so anything is going to help.
