GLOBIO Model Deprecation

Hi all,

I noticed with the release of InVEST 3.13.0 that the GLOBIO model has been deprecated. However, I haven’t been able to find much documentation regarding why that decision was made. Could someone please speak to why it has been deprecated? I know it could be used via an older InVEST build, but I’m just curious about what motivated that decision.


Hi @dg34,
The primary reason we deprecated the InVEST GLOBIO model is that it’s been made obsolete. The developers of the GLOBIO model have released their own open-source code and command-line tool, available here, and also a web viewer. We recommend using these official GLOBIO tools as they should be more correct and up-to-date that what we used to provide.
