The SWx TREC team is developing a new visualization capability to take advantage of the full Enlil 3D data volume and interactively visualize the CME expansion out of the plane of the Earth. This new tool is designed to give forecasters and researchers the full view of the heliosphere in a manner that can be tailored to different classes of users. To accomplish this, we are deploying the Enlil solar wind model into a scalable Cloud-based model staging platform computing environment, which will allow the full 3D Enlil output to reside in-situ with the visualization engine. We are in the process of collaborating with space weather forecasters to design a new interactive 3D visualization tool that meets their needs, and a preliminary version of this visualization tool is available for early testing. This tool is not yet ready for research, but is being made available as an early preview to the community using 2D data slices generated for September 2017. Features, interactivity, and available data will be enhanced over time.
