Global Solar Atlas
The Global Solar Atlas, in addition to a series of global, regional and country GIS data layers and poster maps, has been developed to support the scale-up of solar power in countries across the world. The primary aim of this Global Solar Atlas is to provide quick and easy access to solar resource and photovoltaic power potential data globally, at a click of a mouse. GIS layers and poster maps showing global, regional, and country resource potential can be found in the Download section. Further description of the data provided, the methodology for estimating solar resource potential, and guidance on how to use it, can be found in the Knowledge Base section.
