GIS is one of the leading tools used to identify and assess potential renewable energy sites and is used to help inform site design. GIS offers significant benefits over traditional methods, as rapid searches of large areas can be undertaken using datasets that are being continuously updated. Once a suitable site has been found, GIS can be used to accurately plot on site constraints to determine suitable turbine locations whilst the team can the use the GIS to determine, using height data for the surrounding area, where each of the turbines will be visible to help inform the landscape and visual assessment.
