The service provides download access to data from the Solar X-ray Imager (SXI) service from the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) of the U.S. National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA). It provides search against an archive of processed or unprocessed images, which applications can download in a selection of file formats.
API methods support specification of the image type (raw or processed data and output file format) along with varied parameters such as the satellite number that generated the image, the sort of solar phenomenon documented, filter wavelength, and the time the image was generated as well as the exposure time.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
