Attention Recreation Model Users

DaveDave Member, Administrator, NatCap Staff
The Recreation model underwent an overhaul for InVEST version 3.3. The functionality is much improved and there are a few new features.  Results produced from earlier versions of the model will be nearly identical to results from the new version.

However, there were lots of changes under the hood. So users of this model are strongly encouraged to install InVEST 3.3. We will continue to support older versions of the Recreation model, but at some point in the future (2-3 months) we will shut down the server that hosts versions 3.2 and earlier.

    Hi InVEST Recreation model users.

    If you are using the Recreation model from InVEST version 3.2 or earlier (meaning you have not downloaded InVEST since March 2016) you are strongly encouraged to install the latest version of InVEST (download here)

    Today we will temporarily shutdown the server hosting the old version of the Recreation model (other InVEST models not affected), and it may or may not come back online.

    So please update to InVEST 3.3, for a much more reliable and pleasurable modeling experience.

    We are pleased to announce a long-overdue update to the Recreation model's database of geotagged image metadata. We have extended the database with Flickr images taken from 2005-2017. The
    user-interface won't reflect that until our next major release, but as
    of now you can input 2017 as the "end year".
