#54: Berne going green

Where are possible sites for wind and hydropower? How much power can be produced with these alternative energy sources? Check out the interactive maps produced by two GIUZ students!

Berne going green

Within the framework of a 5th semester GIS class project at GIUZ, we analyzed potential sites for wind and hydropower in the canton of Berne, Switzerland. We defined criteria to assess site suitability for wind power and hydropower. To work with them in a reasonable way, we used fuzzy logic, a method which provides results close to reality. Our results are visualized in interactive maps. Check them out here!
