Wavegen Resource Analysis and Digital Mapping Application (RADMAPP) Coastal Wave Resource Assessment
In this study, Aquatera further refined the approach followed for both the Highland and the Orkney and Shetland regional resource assessments, building on the Resource Analysis and Digital Mapping Application (RADMAPP) technology. The whole of the UK and Irish coast was divided into 1 km squares for the analysis. These were placed in a database and analysed for coastline type, cliff height, tidal range and water depth. From this database, prospective locations for siting coastal wave devices can be explored and interrogated through a bespoke branded interface.
This new integrated RADMAPP and database combination demonstrated its flexibility to review large search areas. It is also flexible in terms of the number of parameters entered etc. The standard multi-window format helps present information in a clear and synergistic manner.
