SolarGIS is a geographic information system designed to meet the needs of the solar energy industry. It integrates solar resource information and meteorological data with tools for planning and monitoring the performance of solar energy systems. SolarGIS data covers most of the globe, but does not yet cover Canada, the United States, Japan, parts of Australia, and a few other regions. SolarGIS is trying to achieve global coverage by the end of 2012.
To provide clients with additional means of accessing their tools and data, SolarGIS has developed the Data Delivery and PV Planner Calculate APIs. The Data Delivery API retrieves the most recent data from the SolarGIS database and calculates the electrical output of a PV (photovoltaic) system. The PV Planner Calculate API is a simulation tool for the planning and optimization of PV systems.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
