Cartography student project_oloobasirhaufe

  1. 1. Potential of Solar Energy in KenyaSimon HaufeRomana BasirFrancis OlooStudent ProjectCartography & GeovisualizationWS 2012/20131
  2. 2. Project objectives2• To map the main driving factors for solar energy generation• To generate and visualize solar radiation layer for Kenya• To qualitatively visualize the solar energy potential in smalleradministrative units
  3. 3. 3Area of study
  4. 4. 4• Elevation : 90m SRTM from ILRI GIS database• Cloud cover : 1km NOAA-AVHRR CLASS data• Land cover : FAO Africover data• Accessibility : distance from settlements and townsData
  5. 5. Methodology5
  6. 6. Create a global radiation layer• ArcToolbox/Spatial Analyst/SolarRadiation/Area Solar Radiation• Generated from 90m elevationlayer; every 14 days; all months ofyear; 2 hour interval; units ofmeasure: Mwh/m26
  7. 7. Work in ArcScene• Floating the global radiationlayer on itself• Classification (Mwh/m²):< 18001800 – 19501950 – 20502050 – 2200> 22007
  8. 8. 3D-Visualization of Solar radiation8
  9. 9. Mapping of initial data layers• Involved cartographic representation of individual layers• To show the stakeholders the interplay between differentparameters in mapping the potential of solar energy.9
