An easy way to share data using the InVEST Workbench

Hello Community,

I just wanted to point out a feature of the InVEST Workbench User Interface that makes it easy to collect InVEST data inputs for sharing. This can be helpful when working from different computers, sending data to colleagues, or sharing data with us to help debug issues.

From a selected model tab in the InVEST Workbench click “Save As” on the left panel of the InVEST Workbench User Interface and save “Parameters and Data”. Then you can share this archive via Google Drive, Dropbox, or whatever your preference is!

In a future version of InVEST, you’ll be able to take that archive and drag / drop it right into the InVEST Workbench where it will magically unpack that data and fill in your inputs for you!
