Web Mapping and Online GIS Applications for Renewable Energy

Event type: 

Times are EDT - You will learn how to use online maps to download renewable energy resource data for an area you select. And you will learn how to use Web-based geographical information system (GIS) tools developed at the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to support biomass, geothermal, solar, and wind projects. In fact, you will receive an overview of all of the GIS tools available online at NREL.

You can attend the Webinar via your desktop computer and phone line free of charge, but you must register in advance to obtain the URL and password for logging on to the video presentation via the Internet and the phone number to connect to the audio.
