Abstract or Description
Using ArcMap, I analyzed several operational factors that would lead to a successful wind farm off the coast of Maine. Through calculating Euclidean distances and reclassifying the distances to fit within a 10-point scoring system, much of the coastline is viable for a potential wind farm. However, the most suitable area is a 115 square mile location 8 miles off the coast of Lincoln and Cumberland counties.
