It is not recommended to use those files for synthetic generation in mountaneous regions. Ozone has negligible influence on broadband solar radiation and in the model it is considered as a constant value. For calculation of far shading losses, horizon data is taken from digital elevation models with spatial resolution of m. All Inputs to Solargis Model are summarised here.

Dynamic colour legend The map colour coding adjusts according to a region and map zoom level, allowing for more detailed data visualisation.
For full historical time series or TMY hourly files ordered via Solargis climData, the shading is by default not applied.
Secondthe satellite data are used to quantify the attenuation effect of clouds by means of cloud index calculation. See sample data files. Unmatched accuracy Use of Solargis validated data, which has been solargs recognised as the most reliable, in the prospecting stage, prevents disappointment in the later stages of a solar energy project development.
You are free to download, share, adapt, use the maps solargiss we ask you to give appropriate credit. Poster-size maps Maps provided as high resolution, ready-to-print image files for poster-size formats on various materials paper, canvas, boards, stickers, etc. Solar data with m grid resolution for reliable energy assessment showing detailed solar climate variability, e.
Other resources Links to our publicly available solar resource assessments, solzrgis, papers, blogs, contributions for specific country or region.
Considering the shading from terrain, the spatial resolution of data products is enhanced up to 3 arc-seconds which is about 90 metres at the equator, less towards the poles.
We have developed the largest collection of solar resource maps to help the solar industry with development of solar projects. Water vapour is also highly variable, but compared to aerosols, it has lower impact on magnitude of DNI and GHI change. Far shading losses from terrain is accounted for in the solar radiation solargs available via iMaps.
Most detailed Spatial resolution of m and sub-hourly temporal resolution better represent typical and extreme weather and improve accuracy.

Bankable solar data for better decisions | Solargis
Ssolargis Cloud model estimates cloud attenuation on global irradiance. Third, the clear-sky irradiance is coupled with cloud index to retrieve Global Horizontal Irradiance GHI all-sky irradiance.

Direct, circumsolar and isotropic diffuse components are corrected for terrain shadowing. People are the main consumers of energy, therefore population maps matters Population map, Asia.
Most reliable Multiple independent studies have found Solargis to be the most reliable solsrgis database. Use of Solargis validated data, which has been independently recognised as the most reliable, in the prospecting stage, prevents disappointment in the later stages of a solar energy project development.
Last, irradiance may be further corrected for shading solarhis from terrain. Model by Ruiz Arias is used to achieve enhanced spatial representation — from the resolution of satellite 3 to 4 km to the resolution of digital terrain model.
Global coverage Solargis data and services are available for any location between latitudes 60N and 50S. Yearly data are presented in the left column for selected location, monthly data can be accessed by clicking on the balloon mark and downloading the PDF, XLS or CSV file. A number of improvements are introduced to better cope with complex identification of albedo in tropical variable solargks, complex terrain, at presence of snow and ice, etc.
First, the clear-sky irradiance is calculated using the clear-sky model SOLISwhich needs Aerosolswater vapour and Ozone inputs zolargis. When evaluating solar development opportunities in new regions, interactive solar potential maps help to gain strategic insight into options for siting of projects, choice of technology, and planning of business or policy.
Overview Download Tech Specs. Map data are served as high-resolution images, provided in a format suitable for viewing and analyzing in a solrgis version of Google Earth software. Use of daily values sllargis uncertainty, especially in regions with variable and high atmospheric load of aerosols. For calculation of far shading losses, horizon data is taken from digital elevation models with spatial resolution of m.
The solar radiation retrieval in Solargis is basically split into 5 steps:
