This interactive visualization presents average wind power and wind farm locations across Canada. Wind power data are obtained from the Canadian Wind Energy Atlas, and wind farm locations are obtained from a combination of sources: CANWEA, TheWindPower.net and individual wind farm project websites.

Wind power is symbolized using a yellow-green-purple colour ramp for low to high wind power. Wind farm locations are symbolized using proportional circles that are reflective of the production of wind energy (GWh) at each location. The wind energy production value (GWh) for every wind farm is estimated using the same capacity factor of 0.262.
