hi InVEST users~
when I run the profile generator,I got this tip:

Checking and preparing inputs...
Preparing inputs for Wave Watch III and/or fetch calculations...
Error preparing Wave Watch III inputs or calculating fetch.

what should I do to correct it?
thank you!


  • Hi,

    It seems to me that this error is caused by problems in your projections. Are all your input files correctly projected, following guidance in the User Guide?
  • Hi,

    Thank you to tell me that projection problem.The guide book says" The datum of this input must be WGS 1984",I tried some include WGS_1984_World_Mercator ,still falled with same reason...,and UTM couldn't be used to project.
    I am using Xiamen China map,which should I choose to project?
  • Hi,

    take a look at this map:

    or do a search for UTM China.

    Also, make sure you're projected in meters.
