Wind Farm Sensitivity Map for the Red Sea and Rift Valley Region

Client:   Bird Life Interational
Region of Interest:  Rift Valley/Red Sea
Start Date:  October 2012
Staff Members: 

The compilation of a sensitivity layer from data held by BirdLife International and their partners.
The development of a web tool in Flex to serve this along with other contextual layers.
The web tool queries the data and returns the sensitivity in a given area.

Revisions have included web-tool updates (both functional and graphical), new species data, a revised formula for calculating sensitivity to wind turbines, and we have incorporated slopes analysis data revealing the prominence of ridges.
The web-tool has been well received in the industry and future developments are planned.
