Uganda map - solar and wind data

By default the map features the 9km East Africa wind map shared by Vortex and the UNEP WCMC protected areas. Solar DNI and GHI information is available from the NREL 40km dataset (UNEP SWERA) and HelioClim 1 from Mines ParisTech. The user can access more layers through the Data Browser and create its own maps. Please see the video tutorials at: http://www.irena.org/GlobalAtlas/
