Abstract

In the last few years, the world toward attention to the renewable and clean
energy sources in order to reduce the environmental pollutions and reduce the coast.
Therefore, the windmills technology was essential in these applications. In this
paper, the climatic data and geographic information system (GIS) facilities were
used to study and produce the wind speed map on the ground level for Iraq country.
Many Field data, (climatic monitoring) from the periods, (1953-1970) and (1971-
2010) were collected and prepared. The data source was the Iraqi metrological
department, this establishment operates and control wide climatic stations
distributed around country. Many image processing and remote sensing techniques
were used to present the results. The full Iraq photomap of Landsat TM (bands 1, 3,
5) with 28.5m in spatial resolution was used to overlay the results. The output of
research was a photomap that locates the best sites for windmills .The locations have
been selected through certain criteria. The results indicate that the Nasrya, Basrah,
Nukhaib, Alhai and Hadeetha are promising places for establishing wind turbine due
to the best wind velocities values
