Abstract: The eSDO project is funded by the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to integrate Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) data, algorithms, and visualization tools with the UK’s Virtual Observatory project, AstroGrid. In preparation for the SDO launch in January 2009, the eSDO team has developed nine algorithms covering coronal behaviour, feature recognition, and global / local helioseismology. Each of these algorithms has been deployed as an AstroGrid Common Execution Architecture (CEA) application so that they can be included in complex VO workflows. In addition, the PLASTIC-enabled eSDO ”Streaming Tool” online movie application allows users to search multi-instrument solar archives through AstroGrid web services and visualise the image data through galleries, an interactive movie viewing applet, and QuickTime movies generated on-the-fly.
