I'm looking to locate an ideal position by creating a cross over with the perfect slope angle and aspect so that the location is sheltered from prevailing winds. how do I get the information to do this?

It depends where is your study area.

But generally you will need a dem (digital elevation model) from which slope and aspect can be derived.

A common source is the aster dem. Widely available for download.

Do you have spatial analyst?
