MD iMAP: Maryland Offshore Wind Energy Planning - Offshore Wind Roses

Metadata Updated: July 23, 2021

This is a MD iMAP hosted service layer. Find more information at The purpose of creating this file was to use MesoMap to create high-resolution wind maps of the state and to provide wind resource data in a format enabling the assessment of potential wind development sites in a GIS. By combining a sophisticated numerical weather model capable of simulating large-scale wind patterns with a microscale wind flow model responsive to local terrain and surface conditions - they enable the mapping of wind resources with much greater accuracy than has been possible in the past. In addition - they do not require surface wind data to make accurate predictions. While on-site measurements will be required to confirm the predicted wind resource at any particular location - mesoscale-microscale modeling can greatly reduce the time and cost required to identify and evaluate potential wind project sites. This map was created by AWS Truepower - LLC using the MesoMap system and historical weather data. Although it is believed to represent an accurate overall picture of the wind energy resource - estimates at any location should be confirmed by measurement.
