Recreation in estuaries

Hi InVEST users,

Anyone already try to run the recreation model in urban/semi-urban estuaries? 
I am trying to run the recreation model in some estuaries and coastal zones from Portugal, but I been thinking of the applicability of this model to this case, particularly in urban estuaries. 

Any thoughts about the application of this model to estuaries?

    Hi Jacinto,

    I don't know of any estuary applications out there, but I can say that the Recreation model has been run in lots of urban and rural environments. Also, it is designed to work in any location and environment.

    You can run the model with nothing but an AOI shapefile and get a map of the visitation patterns. So give it a try!
