Urban InVEST - Urban Cooling Model and Flood Risk Mitigation Available?

Hello NatCap Software Support,

I’m an engineer working at Addis Ababa University with a group of PhD students trying to analyze land use changes in the city.

Are the Urban Cooling Model and Flood Risk Mitigation Model available for download as well associated sample data?

These features are included in the user manual, but I can’t find downloads links for these features and the sample data folder for the latest version is empty!

Thank you,

Hi Alex, this development build includes the Urban Flood Risk Mitigation Model. It looks like the Urban cooling model is still under development.


Hi Dave, thank you for your reply. Is there an estimate for when a build of the Urban Cooling Model will be released?

I think the bulk of development has been done, but I’m not in a position to say when it will be ready for release, sorry.
