Webinar: U.S. Wind Turbine Database Opens Up Access via an API

Event Date:

March 19, 2019 - 10:00am

A new application programming interface (or API) for the database can make connecting to the database faster and more efficient than ever.

The United States Wind Turbine Database (USWTDB), which launched last April, has just added a new capability, the USWTDB API, which should dramatically improve the efficiency of connecting to the database.

Join the Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) specialist of the USWTDB in a webinar next Tuesday, March 19th at 1 PM ET. He will walk through both how simple and powerful this new API capability is.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), in collaboration with the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), developed the USWTDB, which was launched in April of 2018. As of March 1, 2019, over 1.4 million visits to the site had been logged. 

From the USWTDB website, users can download these data in various formats and view and query the data from the online map viewer. With the API, users can now access and query any part of the regularly updated dataset from their desktop from within simple applications such as Excel and opensource mapping software. 

The webinar, which will be 30 minutes, will contain multiple demos allowing attendees to see how simple and powerful utilizing this new capability is. 

The Berkeley Lab effort was supported by the DOE’s Wind Energy Technologies Office.
