New and up-to-date roughness and tree-height maps of Turkey in windPRO: ÜSTÜN windPROSPER Maps

During 2016-2018 EMD International A/S (EMD) formed a fruitful project partnership with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and ÜSTÜN Energy Engineering LLC from Turkey (ÜSTÜN) within the Eurostars project “windPROSPER”. In 2019 products from the project are released by the project partners and made available to users of windPRO. First product from windPROSPER was EMD’s release of the ERA5-based EMD-WRF Europe+ mesoscale dataset/wind map. Now, ÜSTÜN releases their “ÜSTÜN windPROSPER Maps”. These maps deliver high quality, up-to-date roughness and tree height maps of Turkey and Denmark directly into online-services of windPRO. The “ÜSTÜN windPROSPER Maps” are commercial, premium grade maps that are licenced directly from ÜSTÜN with an annual subscription plan. Updates of the datasets are scheduled to a 1-2 years cycle.
