[70.05] Integrated Access to Solar Data using EGSO

The European Grid of Solar Observations (EGSO) is a virtual observatory based on Grid technology funded under the IST (Information Society Technologies) thematic priority of the European Commission's Fifth Framework Programme (FP5).

EGSO allows the user to use metadata catalogues to select solar data based on a number of criteria, including a search based on events, features or phenomena. Since the first release of EGSO in September 2003, members of the solar community have been involved in product testing. The constant testing and feedback allows us to continue to improve the quality and usability of the system. The capabilities of the latest release (R4) will be demonstrated and the scientific problems that it addresses discussed.

EGSO is collaborating closely with groups in the US who are working on similar virtual observatory projects for the solar, solar-terrestrial and heliospheric communities with the objective of providing integrated access to these data. In particular, strong synergies between the EGSO and CoSEC projects are producing innovative ways of accessing the data that will be deployed in both projects.
