SunPy: A ginga based data explorer / database browser

by Rajul for Python Software Foundation

Exploring solar data for interesting events and extracting important information is important for being able to do research. Currently, such a GUI program does not exist for Python. However, with the current capabilities of Ginga, it offers a very good base. It allows us to expand to meet the requirements for solar data. Ginga is designed to use a plugin system. This enables SunPy specific plugins to be written that can be installed by any user.
