Hello,
I am interested in testing the software for multiple locations in several countries in Europe, but I can't find the documentation about the wind fields, like which source was consulted for the map and which countries are covered in the product. Would it be possible to get these lists, so I can validate how I can make the most efficient use of the software? Countries of interest are France, Germany, Poland and Lithuania (as a subset) and the wind speeds for several return levels.

I am looking forward to the discussion, but so far I am impressed by the ease of use of the software.

Hello Gijs,

I'm glad you like the software !

"Eurocodes Zoning" currently covers 4 countries (France and oversea territories, Belgium, Luxembourg and Italy).
You can check the releases page for more information.

Maybe in the near future other countries will be integrated into the software.
For this I will have to acquire the corresponding national annexes in English [and some free time to code this part :) ].

Thanks, St├ęphane,
That is very useful information, what I read so far (in my research) is that not all the national annexes are free, so I completely understand that the list is not complete. For France, I could use the EuroTools software, which is great, for my other locations I will have to look for other reference tools.

Kind regards,
Gijs

Thanks, Stephane,
I was not sure if you wanted an active link (to a similar service/platform) on the forum :-)

That's okay, I don't mind.
I do not sell software but make them available for free.
What's good is that there is no competition...

More should develop tools like this EuroTools platform, open and free insights by standards and science is very important - but this is slightly off topic.
