The reason this utility is needed is that 7-8 spatial resolution of the windspeed maps that are displayed in ASCE 7 are not sufficient to determine a site specific windspeed. It is assumed that the users of this site have competency to understand how to calculate and apply design wind loads to structural models of buildings or other structures.
There are no reference city or town locations on the ASCE 7 windspeed maps and while county boundaries are shown, the resolution is affected when the maps are expanded large enough to distinguish the boundaries and approximate the city locations.

Without providing too much detail, the design windspeeds are different because the basis for wind design was service-level, fastest mile windspeeds in ASCEservice-level, 3-second gust windspeeds in ASCE and strength-level, 3-second gust windspeeds in ASCE An underestimation of windspeed could result is a design that does not meet the requirements for minimum wind design loads for the building under consideration. This site uses the now discontinued free Google geo data API which no longer works.
Click the radio button for decimal and then the coordinates auto-populate in the decimal location. Windspeeds are site-specific for the location provided and are found by interpolation of map contours to the nearest 1-mph.

Users are cautioned to provide the most accurate location for the building site by specifying either the known street address, city and state or the latitude and longitude to at least five 5 decimal places.
Users are cautioned to be sure to use the correct windspeed associated with the edition of ASCE 7 being used in the design.
