Onshore wind resource maps are the primary data for wind farm site prospecting, national renewable energy supply policy and power system network design development. This study discusses appropriate service levels in terms of elements and spatiotemporal resolution in wind resource maps, with a view to improving the wind resource map service in Korea. The study investigated the production technology and service status of the wind resource maps currently in use in Europe, the United States, Australia, and Japan. As a result, it identified that a capacity factor map should be included in order to perform more direct measurements close to wind power generation, and that various wind resource maps, along with wind speeds, need to be included, such as surface geographical maps and environmental conservation maps. In particular, the spatial resolution of wind resource maps should be improved to within 200 m, with the inclusion of horizontal grid spacings, and up to 200 m above ground level vertically in the same manner as in Europe and the United States. It is expected that the improved service proposed by this paper will be more useful to policy makers, the wind power industry, and wind energy researchers.
