3TIER has announced the public release of wind and solar annual averages from its global datasets as part of Google’s Map Gallery launch.
Through its collaboration with Google, 3TIER makes it freely available to both researchers and the general public in Google’s platform. Each dataset offers annual average values created using scientific techniques and derived from long-term historical weather models of 10 or more years at high spatial and temporal resolutions. The wind map provides average annual wind speed at 80 meters above ground at a 5km spatial resolution. This information is a subset of a larger global wind dataset created by 3TIER
