Heliophysics is the branch of physics that investigates the interactions between the Sun and the other bodies of the solar system. Heliophysicists rely on data collected from numerous sources scattered across the Solar System. The data collected from these sources is processed to extract metadata and the metadata extracted in this fashion is then used to build indexes of features and events called catalogues. Heliophysicists also develop conceptual and mathematical models of the phenomena and the environment of the Solar System. More specifically, they investigate the physical characteristics of the phenomena and they simulate how they propagate throughout the Solar System with mathematical and physical abstractions called propagation models. HELIOGate aims at addressing the need to combine and orchestrate existing web services in a flexible and easily configurable fashion to tackle different scientific questions. HELIOGate also offers a tool capable of connecting to sizeable computation and storage infrastructures to execute data processing codes that are needed to calibrate raw data and to extract metadata.
