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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
