Need clear control over Ecospace capacity calculations

Reported by: jeroens Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone: Ecopath 6: future version
Component: Ecospace Version: 6.5
Severity: major Keywords:


EwE 6.5 allows users to configure how Ecospace will calculate habitat capacity: from habitats, from environmental drivers, or both. How this system uses the underlying capacity input maps is unclear. This needs improving

Change History

comment:1 Changed 6 years ago by jeroens

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Summary changed from Need clear control over capacity calculations to Need clear control over Ecospace capacity calculations

The UI has been modified as follows:

  • Group capacity: check, per group, whether habitat or env. responses are to be used

Capacity, per group, is calculated from these settings as follows:

  • Capacity is always set from Capacity input maps
  • If Habitat is to be used, capacity is modified by total habitat usage per cell
  • If env drivers are to be used, capacity is modified by the total env responses, per cell

Capacity driven from external data, per group, is incorporated as follows:

  • Computed capacity is overwritten by external data

This perhaps needs a change in the UI, where the Group Capacity row is disabled when an external driver is present
