GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Windpower Potential" (2005)
Description: The North Carolina State Energy Office in the Department of Administration supported the NC Center for Geographic Information and Analysis to develop a polygon layer of windpower potential in North Carolina, based on an analysis and model developed for the State Energy Office by AWS Truewind, LLC of Albany, New York (2004). The data set represents windpower potential measured in Watts per square meter at a tower height of 50 meters, mapped originally in raster format in 200-meter cells by AWS TrueWind. The conversion to a polygon layer makes the data more suitable for web mapping applications, including NC OneMap. This data set was created to assist energy producers and users and public agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
