Habitat Model

Release Notes


  • FIS Engine has been updated with a fix that caused sporadic value glitches.
  • FIS Engine updated with a NOT feature for the ruleset definitions.

1.2.5 - 3 Jun 2016

  • New Feature: Raster outputs from CSV-only inputs. Also CSV outputs from Raster-only inputs.
  • New Feature: Histograms now output inside the XML file and to their own CSV file in the Simulation folder.
  • New Feature: Simulation meta values allow you to pass meta-data (like visit id, etc) through to the results.
  • Improved validation of form inputs.
  • Individual XML outputs for each simulation can be scraped using our workbench app.
  • Short names for simulations, models allow for better file naming.
  • Fixed: WUA and NWUA outputs now consistent and correct across HSI and FIS simulations
  • Divisibility and orthogonality checking added to raster input forms.
  • Simulation run stability fixes to reduce crashing during long runs.
  • Much better error handling.
  • Optional uploading of errors to AWS.
  • Reworked a lot of the forms to be easier to use
  • Lots of stability fixes for grid views.

1.2.1 - 9 Mar 2016

1.1.4 - 8 Jan 2016

  • Fixed editing habitat suitability curves so that the units show up as the correct. Previously editing an existing HSC would not select the correct units in the dropdown.
  • When creating or editing a HSI model the curves available for selection are now filtered to just those for the specified species and life stage.
  • When creating a new project, canceling the browse for a folder no longer clears any folder path that’s already specified.

1.1.3 - 6 Nov 2015

  • FIS results now written to output XML and then imported back into Habitat project.
  • Upgraded to RasterMan 6.2.0
    • Raster compression on all rasters generated by RasterMan and ModelCore.

1.1.2 - 21 Oct 2015

  • Fixing boolean that controls whether simulation output is CSV or raster.

1.1.1 - 1 Oct 2015

  • Fixed issue with missing simulation results in project after run.

1.1.0 - 6 Jul 2015

  • FIS Habitat Modeling. Ships with version 1 of the models for Chinook, Steelhead and for juvenile and spawner.
  • Miscellaneous user interface clean-up
    • More consistent right and double click on main grid
    • Can edit all existing items (including simulations and habitat suitability curves)
  • Project files are now stored as XML files (not Access databases)
  • 64 bit release only.

1.0.7 - 17 Apr 2015

  • Miscellaneous UI improvements
    • More consistent right click menus
    • Removing menus relating to FIS (and other features that are not yet implemented).
    • Progress bars and improved messaging during model runs.
    • Hooking the software to this site and linking to the online help (but forms not yet linked).
  • Incorporated RasterMan 6.1.6.
    • Improved error messaging from the core model.

1.0.6 - 18 Feb 2015

  • CHaMP batch mode working for CSV and raster mode.
  • Split configuration and definition XML input files.
  • Weighted usable area and normalized weighted usable area metrics being produced and stored in the project database.
  • Habitat Model User Interface DLL and Desktop EXE merged into single project.
