Recreation and Tourism model: help obtaining home location information

Dear NatCap team,

I have being applying the InVEST recreation and tourism model to estimate nature recreation in protected areas of South America. I was wondering if is there a way to obtain home location information with the model or if is there an Rpackage that could help me download the associated user profile information reporting  home location. 

Thank you in advance for the help

    Hi @maria_martinez_harms,

    Great question. Tracking the home location of visitors is something the Recreation model does not do now, but it is a feature we wish to implement in the future. And we have prototyped some methods in R for doing this and for calculating travel distances from a visitor's home to destination.

    If you would email me and describe a bit about the project you are working on, we may be able to test our workflow on your example and work together to improve our methods.

    Thanks for posting!
