Wind Farm Mapping
Wind Farms Through the Years is an animated map showing the locations and the dates of when wind farms were constructed in the USA. The map animates through the years 1975 to 2013 adding the wind farms to the map by date of construction.
As the animation plays the map keeps a total of the number of wind farms constructed and the number of homes those wind farms could power. You can also drag the slide control to any year to view the totals for that year. The map also uses different colored markers to indicate the wind farms added in the current selected year.
