At present there exists a great deal of GIS providing data on renewable energy on local and international level. In case of lack of field measurements the idea of using open source data along with field actinometrical measurements on the certain (or existing) sites seems to be efficient from the point of view of accuracy and costs. An overview of GIS commonly used in Russia and USA is given below. All the data used in the overview is available as project descriptions given on the web portal being discussed. All the systems have been analysed from the point of view of the data used on the portal, visualization tools and maps (wind, solar etc.).
