Whitepaper #011 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: basic research; infrastructure/workforce/other programmatic. Additional topics: other basic research; solar physics; research tools and infrastructure.
Heliophysicists will have to manage the increasing amount of information from new missions and improved re-analysis of past missions. This is further complicated by different datasets/catalogs in different formats requiring different analysis tools, often available in different programming languages. There is need for venues of discussion and coordination of data management and interoperability.
