Free Open Source Software: FOSS based Geographic Information System: GIS for spatial retrievals of appropriate locations for ocean wind and tidal motion utilizing electric power generation plants is proposed. Using scatterometer onboard earth observation satellites, strong wind coastal areas are retrieved with FOSS/GIS of PostgreSQL/GIS. PostGIS has to be modified together with altimeter and scatterometer database. These modification and database creation would be a good reference to the users who would like to create GIS system together with database with FOSS.
