Renewable energy has been a very hot topic in the recent months. I have been asked multiple times if GIS has a role in renewable energy. Absolutely it does! In the blogs below, I share some tips and tricks to analyzing elevation data in ArcGIS Pro and free sources for renewable energy site planning data.

I also invite you to check out our updated website and new blog posts!

Happy Mapping,
