Hi - I’m working with several InVEST models for a very large study area (~300 miles of coastline and inland ~20 miles). Because of the resolution of my input landcover dataset (30x30m), the model takes many days to run for the entire study area.
My solution to this is to segment the overall study area into 5 different AOIs. All of the input datasets are the same across all segments (habitat boundaries, stressors, and criteria scores/weights/DQ). Does the HRA have “edge effects” that would prevent me from confidently stitching together these segments into an overall HRA output?
Phrased another way - will an HRA risk score of 1.5 in one segment be the same as a risk score of 1.5 in a different segment if all of the input habitat/stressor datasets and criteria scores are the same?
If not - could anyone suggest an alternative that gets me an HRA output across this entire study area?
Thanks for the help in advance!
