Developing a wind energy tool in ArcGIS
Witteveen+Bos developed a wind tool in ArcGIS a few years ago. With the wind tool, search areas can be determined where wind turbines could possibly be placed. The search areas are created by excluding areas where wind turbines are not allowed. This wind tool was developed in ArcGIS. However we would very much like to develop this tool further, think of an online platform where users can use the tool in an interactive way. Users such as municipalities, energy cooperation’s, project developers and citizens. The tool has to be updated as well and we want to add features such as a small business case module and ways to make the tool interactive (think of analyzing multiple wind scenario’s).
