EO-WINDFARM: Design and integration of an EO-based mapping service based on end-user demands for geo-information when planning, constructing and operating wind farms.

Project Details

Description

EO-based information service for WINDFARM management.



The EO-WINDFARM project runs in years 2003 and 2007 with funding from the European Space Agency (ESA), Earth Observation Market Development (EOMD) programme.



Objective

The overall objective of this study is to design and integrate an EO-based mapping service based on end-user demands for geo-information when planning, constructing and operating wind farms.



The service will benefit citizens of Europe, through improved cost-effectiveness pre-siting, constructing and operating wind farms. The service products will be GIS compatible, for easy inclusion in different customer applications.

The focus of this project is on providing an EO-based information service, aiding potential customers. The service will provide different products for different regions, e.g. for offshore sites EO wind mapping will be an important product, while for land sites other EO products such as roughness mapping will be more relevant.
