This activity uses ArcGIS Online, a Web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) as a tool for siting a wind turbine on a typical school campus, and your own school campus. Consider relief, proximity to buildings, wind speed, direction of slope, local access, and other variables, first by examining Platte Valley High School, and then your own campus.
