Sonification of Solar Data

April 8, 2013 | 1:02 pm

Hello,

I am looking to take live data from the sun (mainly solar wind and Solar flairs) and create audio output.

I have found these sources
ftp://umbra.nascom.nasa.gov/pub/data/realtime/
ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/plots/goeshp/20130408_goeshp.gif

I know that people have done simular projects before but I wondered if anyone on here knows of any example patches etc?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

All the best
Tim

Robert Alexander did a big project about this and it is in Max. Maybe he would be kind enough to share it if you ask: http://vimeo.com/31574334

Hey thanks very much for the replies.

I have decided to use this source

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/lists/ace/20130409_ace_sis_5m.txt

Which updates every hour and using the jit.uldl object to download the data.

How would I go about just taking the numerical data from this? I would like to ignore the text and just use the numbers into coll to create a data set which is readable.

Again any help would be very much appreciated.

All the best
Tim
