Preparing data for wind modelling

During the examination process for wind park location, the role of accessible data is essential because they characterize and justify the choice of the place. The location is justified with meteorological data with precise measurements and analysis for at least one-year period, and detailed maps of the surroundings until 3 km to the direction of dominant winds.

Maps of the surroundings are both precise topography maps and terrain 3D models. Laser scanning and aerial photography data are used for terrain modelling. Metrum performs laser scanning together with aerial photography as well as data processing and creation of 3D models.
