SpotWind API

Localized wind conditions have a significant impact on our environment and our interactions with it. Estimating current local conditions and predicting what they will be in the future allows us to prepare for these environmental changes, whether that involves identifying the optimal location for a microturbine, predicting the path of a wildfire or just finding the right time and place to go sailing. 

SpotWind is a service API that uses the Localized Wind Modeling tool developed by GDA to make localized wind estimates available through an easy to use interface. Designed to support both internal and external applications, this service allows users to request data using standard geographic coordinates, elevation, and time to request vector fields of estimated localized winds and associated uncertainty to allow users to manage confidence in their applications.
