Wind Buddha™ version 1.1 provides a macro level view of the wind energy potential for most of the United States categorized by a wind power classification. System users can locate areas of interest by U.S. address, or by manually selecting a point on the map. In addition to providing energy potential, the Buddha also offers non-private land ownership information, transmission line data, current wind information, and live NEXRAD radar weather tracking.
The Wind Buddha™ application utilizes the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) ArcGIS® Silverlight Control with industry standard Open Source tools including: GeoWebCache, GeoServer, PostGIS, and the Open Street Map dataset. Representational State Transfer (REST) and the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services have also been integrated into the application, in preparation for expansion into additional web clients.

With the Wind Buddha™ release, GeoLab continues to expand upon its commitment to merge commercially available GIS software with Open Source software for energy related applications. The demand for Rich Internet Applications (RIA) such as Silverlight technology usage in the Geo-Spatial user community continues to rise. GeoLab has chosen to utilize strong suits of the Silverlight technology, with the benefits of managed code on the .NET platform. Open Source server side GIS components provide an ideal accompaniment to the client side ESRI and Microsoft® solutions.
