Frequently Asked Questions about Remote Sensing Systems - Separating Fact from Fiction
Answers advanced questions about remote sensing technology for wind measurement. Ideal for people already working in the wind industry, or who have already watched our Remote Sensing 101 webinar.

​Watch this webinar to deepen your understanding of the applications of remote sensing technology, including SoDAR and LiDAR, in wind resource assessment and wind farm operations. Questions that are discussed include:

  • Do remote sensing systems need to be calibrated on site?
  • Do you need to validate a remote sensing system against a tower before you begin a measurement program?
  • Are remote sensing systems more expensive than towers?
  • Is the industry’s definition of “accuracy” really accurate?
