SESDA developers released a new and completely redesigned version of the Solar and Heliospheric data exploration tool Helioviewer. Helioviewer is a web-based visualization tool based on the JPEG 2000 image compression format which facilitates serving large data volumes in highly compressed, quality-progressive, and region-of-interest based form. Providing rapid and efficient access to high spatial and time resolution data from multiple instruments and other data sources is critically important to supporting scientific discovery. The new tool features a versatile image timeline browse capability, direct connections to science data providers via the Virtual Solar Observatory, and enhanced integration with social media platforms including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest.
