Which version of In VEST is best for annual water yield model? I mean 3.3, 3.4 or 3.5. Please let me know it.

    Hi @Marye -

    We recommend using the latest versions of our models (3.5 at the moment) because they have the latest improvements and bug fixes. I don't think that any of the algorithms have changed for annual water yield between those versions. Is there something in particular you're concerned about?

    Thank you. When I try to run the model it shows me a warning about the work space existence. And it asks me to overwrite files from a previous run. I don't know if it affects my result.

    It always does that if your folder already exists, and it is a bit of a scary warning. If you are saving multiple model runs to the same folder, and do *not* specify a different Suffix for each, then it will overwrite your previous results. But if you *do* provide a Suffix, then it will create a new set of results, differentiated in filename by the Suffix.
