WORLD WIND MAPS - WORLD WIND ATLAS

World Wind Maps - Wind Atlases of the World.

This article provides you with essential links to world wide wind maps. The maps contain data on the wind speed and wind direction in a region. Typically, a climatological wind atlas covers hourly averages at a standard height (10 meter) over even longer periods (30 years). You can make use of a wind atlas when you are looking into pre-selecting wind farm sites. The wind atlas methodology and has been applied in more than 100 countries and territories around the world - for national, regional and local studies. A list of major national and regional studies - several of which contain WAsP data files on disk - is given below. The 35+ countries on this page are:
