Steps in the small wind series : assessing your wind resource
"This guide will help you understand the effects of wind speed, wind shear, wind distribution, prevailing winds, turbulence and elevation. Take time to understand wind assessment and learn about your wind resource to help you ask the right questions when working with your installer. Your system installer should conduct a more in-depth analysis of the wind resource, as they usually have more accurate data and assessment tools. You can also purchase higher quality data using fee-for-service mapping tools. Before buying wind data, know what data source the company uses. Some companies use free data for their maps, so you could get the same information on your own."--First page.
