SWENET Web Service

The SWENET web service emulates the data browsing capabilities for platform independent, automated access to space weather data. With the help of the web service, your applications (both web and desktop) can access the data stored in the SWENET space weather database. This service is operational since 2007-08.

Below are the resources you will need if you want to integrate SWENET data into your application. As a first start, the developer guide (and accompanying WSDL file) provides an overview of the proposed workflow.

SWENET Web Service Developer Guide PDF 62KB
SWENET WSDL File XML 12KB

Additionally, the demonstration clients give short, concise examples (including source code) for retrieving space weather data, done in a variety of programming languages.

You will need a valid login (username, password) to work with the code examples.
