The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) provides near-real
time solar-terrestrial data in a variety of formats including
solar images, text reports, data lists, and data plots. Data are
available via WWW, anonymous ftp, and a List Server.
SOLCOORD - Current Solar Data
and Worldwide Observing Plans
Physics division of the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC)
archives data in three main disciplines (Geomagnetism, Ionosphere,
and Solar & Upper Atmosphere), and two related satellite programs
(DMSP and GOES). Much of the data collected by SWPC is archived
by NGDC and available on various media.

The International Space Environment
Services (ISES)*, formerly the International Ursigram and World
Days Service (IUWDS), is a joint service of URSI, IAU and IUGG
and is a permanent service of the Federation of Astronomical and
Geophysical Data Services (FAGS). ISES has had an important role
in coordinating the exchange of solar-terrestrial data between
organizations around the world. Centres, known as Regional Warning
Centres (RWCs), have the responsibility for collecting data from
their geographical areas and exchanging these data through the
ISES network. At present, there are ten RWCs located in Beijing
(China), Boulder(USA), Moscow(Russia), Brussels (Belgium), New
Delhi (India), Ottawa (Canada), Prague (Czech Republic), Tokyo
(Japan), Sydney (Australia) and Warsaw (Poland).
The Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications
Technology (NICT) Space Environment Information Service* of
the provides solar radio spectra, H-alpha images, geomagnetic
data, digital ionograms, and a variety of other solar-terrestrial
The IPS Radio and Space Services* in Sydney, Australia
provides real-time space weather data, forecasts and alerts for
a wide variety of conditions, including; Solar, Geophysical, HP
Propagation, Ionospheric, and TEC.
RWC Belgium World Data
Center for the Sunspot Index (SIDC)* -- Fast warnings and
real time monitoring -- Short-term predictions (3 days) and
alerts are produced on a daily basis. Forecasts and middle
term analysis -- the daily, monthly, yearly international
sunspot numbers, with middle range predictions (up to 12 months).
Post-event analysis and long term solar cycle analysis.
Solar Weather Browser (SWB)*
is a software tool developed by the Royal Observatory of Belgium
for easy visualization of solar images in combination with any
context information that can be overlaid on the images and that
is space weather relevant.
