InVEST Habitat Quality model.
This model calculates habitat degradation and quality for the current LULC as described in the InVEST user’s guide. Optionally
executecalculates habitat degradation and quality for a future LULC and habitat rarity for current and future LULC.
args (dict) – a key, value mapping for the habitat quality inputs.
args['workspace_dir'] (string) – a path to the directory that will write output and other temporary files (required)
args['lulc_cur_path'] (string) – a path to an input land use/land cover raster (required)
args['lulc_fut_path'] (string) – a path to an input land use/land cover raster (optional)
args['lulc_bas_path'] (string) – a path to an input land use/land cover raster (optional, but required for rarity calculations)
args['threats_table_path'] (string) – a path to an input CSV containing data of all the considered threats. Each row is a degradation source and each column a different attribute of the source with the following names (case-insensitive): ‘THREAT’,’MAX_DIST’,’WEIGHT’, ‘DECAY’, ‘CUR_PATH’ (required) ‘BASE_PATH’, ‘FUT_PATH’ (optional).
args['access_vector_path'] (string) – a path to an input polygon shapefile containing data on the relative protection against threats (optional)
args['sensitivity_table_path'] (string) – a path to an input CSV file of LULC types, whether they are considered habitat, and their sensitivity to each threat (required)
args['half_saturation_constant'] (float) – a python float that determines the spread and central tendency of habitat quality scores (required)
args['results_suffix'] (string) – a python string that will be inserted into all raster path paths just before the file extension.
args['n_workers'] (int) – (optional) The number of worker processes to use for processing this model. If omitted, computation will take place in the current process.
