The platform allows its users to display and overlay different renewable resource, ancillary datasets like any simplified GIS software.
The Global Atlas for Renewable Energy (the platform) allows its users to:
On the “home” page, the settings section has two sets of parameters: point query and layer query.
In the Point query, users can retrieve any renewable and/or ancillary data on the workspace by specifying the geographical coordinates. The platform responds to the user interaction via the resource and geographical location fields.
In the Layer query, users can retrieve any renewable and/or ancillary layer on the workspace by specifying the search criteria (keywords and use). The platform responds to the user interaction via further implemented geospatial functionalities, such as edit, clip, draw, and save.
Users are advised to register (or sign in) on the Global Atlas to get more benefits of the platform; and familiarize themselves with the “help”, “terms & conditions”, and “about” pages to learn more about the Global Atlas, its partners and data providers.
