Input Error on Carbon Storage Model

edited August 2017 in Terrestrial Models

When I tried to run the carbon invest model with others input files it gave me the following error (attached)

I dont know if it is the problem but im using a land use raster file with a .asc format and I modified the carbon pools table by deleting some lines, leaving only the first 6 lines (because there is only 6 types of land use in my example).

I will be grateful for any help.

    Hi Eduardo -

    The input files to InVEST must have a projected coordinate system, and .asc files generally don't have a coordinate system associated with them. Can you try exporting the .asc to a TIFF, make sure that the TIFF has the correct projected coordinate system assigned, and run the model again?

  • Hello Stacie,

    It works saving the file as ,TIFF !! Thank you so much!!
