Where to buy a home

After analyzing a 30-meter digital elevation model from the Vermont Center for Geographic Information for aspect, I chose only to display southeastern, southern, and southwestern facing slopes.  Southern slopes are shown in a bright orange while southeastern/western slopes are shown in a lighter shade of orange.  My advice to my future self?  Start looking to buy a home in those bright orange areas.  The benefits of passive solar energy are enormous.  Northern slopes are only good for skiing.

    Nice website. This is the first that I have seen of it, but already I like the “data as art” theme. For a more comprehensive estimate of energy partitioning across the landscape, see the command r.sun in GRASS GIS.
