The Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA) is an online Geographic Information System (GIS) tool for viewing renewable resource data. It encompasses a range of solar and wind datasets and maps. It relies on satellite and terrestrial measurements, numerical models, and empirical and analytical mapping methods. Results are integrated into a computer-based geo-referenced information system containing relevant infrastructure data, such as roads and transmission lines, and can be easily imported into common GIS software packages. Through this interactive system, users can view several renewable resource data sets available through SWERA.
