resources and power stations

Discussion created by mwoerner on Feb 2, 2013
Dear all,

within an analysis about resources and power stations I am facing the following problem:

In the attached screenshot there are green areas showing where a resource is available. The pink areas show, where a power station generally could be built. Not yet regarded as a location quality criterion is the proximity to existing roads and transmission lines, but I will implement that later.

Additionally I would like to make a statement how much of the resource is available within a radius of 50 km. Could anybody help me out with a tool or method to do this?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
