Long Description
This data set provides industrial-scale onshore wind turbine locations in the United States through July 22, 2013, corresponding facility information, and turbine technical specifications. Gathered by USGS. The purpose of this project is to provide a publically available, spatially referenced, national dataset of onshore wind turbine locations and their corresponding facility information and turbine technical specifications. The project compiled wind turbine information from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Digital Obstacle File, as well as other manually digitized turbine locations. Verification of the turbine position was done by visual interpretation using high-resolution aerial imagery. Wind farm facility location data from various sources were collected and used to search for and digitize turbines. The database, current through July 2013, has ~47,000 wind turbine records. These have been collected, digitized, positionally verified, and internally reviewed as part of the USGS Fundamental Science Practices. For more information about the dataset, see USGS DS-817.
