The Helioviewer Project: A Hub for Viewing Heliophysics Data

The Helioviewer Project continues to provide the community with a fast and convenient way to view specific activities occurring on and around the Sun from a variety of observatories. Recent developments have focused on providing new data products, capabilities and improved access. For example, now supports a mobile interface which allows it to work comfortably on any device, and GOES-R/SUVI and Solar Orbiter/EUI images are now available.

In addition, new data products are being integrated into Helioviewer. These include the Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) Flare Scoreboard which provides solar flare probabilities, and coronal mass ejection analyses, flare records, and general space weather notifications provided by CCMC’s Database of Notifications, Knowledge, and Information (DONKI). We provide an API for accessing these data and Heliophysics Event Knowledgebase (HEK) data in the unified Helioviewer Event Format, a machine-readable format which can be included in other scientific workflows. Our Python client, HvPy, can be used to access this new API.

Along with these updates to Helioviewer, we are also developing a new web client - provisionally called Helios – that allows users to create interactive 3D-movies of existing Helioviewer image sources and selected model output on desktop and mobile devices.
