Abstract or Description

The State of Maine has considerable potential for renewable wind energy, and represents the greatest amount of current wind power in New England (U.S Wind Industry, 2017). Creating a statewide wind turbine siting map could help government officials, private landowners, and land surveyors better understand wind turbine potential, and allow further analysis of particular areas.

Source Data Note

In this study, I use ArcGIS to locate future wind turbine locations through logistic regression models using economic, social and physical variables within the state of Maine.
