Download of WAsP Lib-files
WAsP generalized wind climate files have been generated on a grid with
7.5 km spacing for the region of interest. All the lib-files
are can be downloaded from this page to be used as input to the
WAsP software to perform site
specific calculations of wind-turbine production.
After arriving at the Tadpole web page from the link below, the user
will see the display which provides a view of Mali in a Google
Earth plug-in. Three datasets are shown at the left hand side of the
screen. They refer to Southern, Central and Northern parts of Mali.
Displaying all three datasets provides a
convenient overview of the complete coverage, but
may lead to slow response of the internet
tool. Clicking on the dataset
headings allows the user to toggle the display of the separate wind-climate
The Google Earth plug-in
allows users to navigate the display around Mali as in
Google Earth. The controls on
the right-hand side can be used along with the mouse and keyboard
for controlling the navigation and view. The search function
allows the user to search for a nearby town.
Each red point on the map,
of which there are approximately 29000, represents the location
for which generalized wind climate data is available in the form
of a WAsP lib-file. To download the lib-file, left-click on the red point and follow the instructions.
