Natural Habitat Error

Hi All,

I am getting an error running the coastal vulnerability model where it looks like the habitat shapefiles are not getting recognized by the model. I have attached the text file below. Any help is very much appreciated.



  • Please disregard. This question. The problem was fixed by editing the habitat shapefiles to correspond with the ID column in the .csv file rather than the RANK column, which is what I had done originally.

    Hi Isaiah,

    You're right, it looks like there's an entry in the NaturalHabitats.csv for Shellfish, but the model couldn't find the shapefile associated with that. That explains the WARNING near the end of your log, but maybe not the error.

    Could you also upload your NaturalHabitats.csv, and also post the exact names of your shapefiles in your NaturalHabitats directory?

    According the user's guide, it's really the number in the ID column of the csv, and the number after the underscore in the shapefile name that need to match. (e.g. shellfish_1.shp)
