117 Like

GeoTIFF raster data with worldwide wind speed and wind power density potential. The GIS data stems from the Global Wind Atlas (http://globalwindatlas.info/). This link provides access to the following layers: (1) Wind speed (WS): at 3 heights (50m, 100m, and 200m) , stored as separate bands in the raster file (2) Power Density (PD): at 3 heights (50m, 100m, and 200m) , stored as separate bands in the raster file. (3) Elevation (ELEV): at ground level (4) Air Density (RHO): at ground level (5) Ruggedness Index (RIX): at ground level All layers have 250m resolution.
