The objective of this work is to produce two maps with the distribution of the average wind speed to 10 and 30 meters above ground level. Was utilized a diagnostic model, that it satisfies the conservation of mass. A mesh is set up throughout the region of interest. It was used remote sensing data to obtain geophysical dates, in each point of the mesh. The atmospheric boundary layer information was obtained of atmospheric models. The calculations of the wind field are carried out with surface data and upper-wind data. In the map of the average velocity of the wind to 10 meters above ground level is observed velocities between 4.0 m/s and 5.0 m/s. The maximums (5.5 to 6.0 m/s) are located where the height exceeds 600 meters above sea level. In the field of the average wind velocity to 30 meters above ground level, the maximums have velocities over 6.5 m/s. Differences of 0.1 m/s (absolute value) are observed between the velocities measures and them calculated by the model. The wind directions of greater frequency and velocity have smaller error. The results obtained of the fields of velocities represent adequately the wind climatic of the zone.
