Water Yield - TypeError: ufunc 'isfinite'

Hello everyone,

I’m trying to run the Wayer Yield model, always receiving the TypeError: ufunc ‘isfinite’. I tried to use different versions of InVEST but this hasn’t helped.

I’ve read that other users had a similar problem in the past. I can confirm that I checked if I had no-data values and all my shapefiles are in the same coordinate system.

I attach here the logfile and my inputs (they are quite large)

Thank you for your help and assistance.

Hey @marco.guzzetti -

Would you please re-post the log file? It doesn’t seem to have attached. Thanks!

I just looked at your data, and it looks like none of the spatial layers have a NoData value set, the “background” pixels are set to 0. I know this has caused a problem with models in the past, so one thing to try is setting a NoData value and see if that helps.

Just to follow up on this, the undefined nodata value is almost certainly what’s causing it (this is something we’ve seen pretty regularly across a lot of InVEST models). Defining a nodata value should be all that’s needed to fix the issue for now, and then this case will be handled properly in InVEST 3.9.

Hi @swolny and @jdouglass

thank you for your replies. I attach the log file.

Also, you are both saying that I should define a Nodata value, but I wonder whether I should assign another value different than 0.

Thanks for providing your logfile, Marco! In this case, the isfinite issue has to do with the fact that a nodata value isn’t defined at all. If a nodata value of 0 makes sense for your inputs, then it would be completely fine to use it as your nodata value.
