Wind roses

Spacemaker provides wind roses on a global level from Global Wind Atlas, to be used with our wind analysis:

Global Wind Atlas 3.0, a free, web-based application developed, owned and operated by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The Global Wind Atlas 3.0 is released in partnership with the World Bank Group, utilizing data provided by Vortex, using funding provided by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP). For additional information:

Weather data
For climate analyses, we use weather data from the dataset ERA5 hourly data provided by Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S).

Nice post 🙂 
My country is not listed. Can I import data from other data suppliers?

Hi @PetroGiancotti!
You can 😀 This is an import question. Do you mind posting the question as a separate thread? EDIT: I have replied to your new post HERE.
