SWIM can collect and display any number of textual reports, such as those provided daily by the Space Environment Center (shown below):
A minimal report configuration is shown here. Hundreds of other reports can be added easily. Any kind of textual report can be monitored.
Monitor real-time auroral activity imagery from orbiting spacecraft. This example is from the IMAGE spacecraft:
Data from the Tiros spacecraft is used by NWRA to create plots of data like this one, managed and regularly updated by SWIM.
Amateur radio operators (HAM) and other radio broadcasters will find the real-time ionospheric absorption maps such as the following extremely useful during periods of solar flare activity. This map shows the absorption of HF radio signals. The yellow diamond is the current location of the Sun at the time this screen was captured. SWIM can be instructed to obtain new plots such as this at any user-defined interval. During flare activity, SWIM can automatically adjust the frequency with which this (or any other resource) refreshes.
Near real-time magnetograms from almost any location that provides plots on the Internet can be managed and displayed by SWIM. Here, the real-time magnetogram from Kiruna (in Europe) is displayed. A smaller screen-captured image of SWIM displaying the magnetogram for Fort Churchill (Canada) is shown in the inset.
Watch the arrival of interplanetary disturbances in real-time with SWIMs powerful data plotting features. SWIM can display any of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) components (Bx, By, Bz or Bt) in detail. In the example below, the user has disabled the display of the Bx and By components during a minor interplanetary disturbance that was tracked on 18 March. The inset screen-captured image in the lower-left shows IMF conditions as they existed prior to the arrival of the shock front (including several hours after the shock impacted). The inset image in the lower-right is a plot showing the sudden jump in the velocity of the solar wind when the shock front from the CME arrived. The larger (non-inset) image was zoomed in to better show the details of the IMF activity.
All plot colors can be adjusted easily in SWIM. Even the white background or the cyan-to-purple(ish) gradient around the outside perimeter of the plot in the example above can be changed to any color desired.
Useful predictions (such as the Wang-Sheeley model of predicted solar wind velocity) are handled effortlessly by SWIM.
And when you have nothing more interesting to do, you can watch the stars in the sky move by each night using any one of numerous all-sky cameras operated by professional observatories around the world. Animations of these images show the telescope dome in operation and tracking the stars.
These are just a few of the hundreds (even thousands) of images and resources that SWIM can manage for you.
With SWIM, adding your own images is just a few simple mouse-clicks away.
Do you have an archive of images that you like to share with others on the Internet? Create your own image layout of your image archive and share that layout with others running SWIM on the Internet.
