SoDa: a Web service on solar radiation

Abstract : A Web service has been developed for answering the needs of industry and research for information on solar radiation parameters with a satisfactory quality. It intends to solve the three major problems identified by customers: i) improving access to information, ii) improving knowledge on space and time structure and iii) improving matching of delivered information to actual needs of customers. This service ( is also innovative with respect to the Internet technologies: it is performing a smart networking of information sources of different natures: databases (radiation, meteorology, elevation, geography...) and algorithms (computation of radiation on slopes, sizing of systems...). These sources were available separately and are geographically dispersed. The service SoDa makes them cooperating and combines them in order to answer to requests, ranging from a series of irradiation values to the sizing of a system.
