SunPy: Database of local data

by Simon Liedtke for Python Software Foundation

The SunPy package offers the module vso (Virtual Solar Observatory) which represents an interface to query and download astronomical data from multiple data providers simultaneously. This project will add a database interface for downloading data to save bandwidth if the same data is requested multiple times. It will also offer a handy way to group results which met certain conditions. Multiple conditions may be chained together using logical operators such as "and", "or", "not". Note: the link in the field "additional info" points to a PDF of my curriculum vitae.
