Helioviewer.org: Solar & Heliospheric Data Visualization
Friday, 19 December 2014
Helioviewer.org enables the simultaneous exploration of multiple heterogeneous solar data sets. The latest iteration of this open-source web application and public API brings significant enhancements to the user interface. The addition of an interactive timeline coupled tightly with the image viewport provides a powerful way to visually explore data availability. Integration with external services allows scientists to visually browse datasets and then request science data downloads directly within the Helioviewer.org UI. A complete visual and functional redesign of the interface brings imagery fullscreen and makes data export functions more discoverable. Support for additional data sets and an expanded and fully documented API with client libraries for popular languages improves the ability of scientists to leverage Helioviewer in their own workflows.
