Calculating Velocity from a VLM method

I have modified a Vortex Lattice Method to calculate the velocity at any point in the flow filed. It does this by using the calculated circulations of each vortex segment to determine the induced velocity at any point in the flow from each vortex. All of the contributions from each vortex segment is then summed and added to the free stream velocity to determine the velocity at that point.
I am most interested in the velocities approaching the leading edge.
I am however having trouble validating my results and was hoping that someone might be able to offer suggestions. Does anyone perhaps know of any available data on the velocities in front of a wing?
