The Space WEeatherR TOr vergata university (SWERTO) service is an operational Space Weather service based on data from space-based and ground-based instruments, located in the Physics Department of the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy (UNITOV). The service is designed to promote the access to technical and scientific information by the regional industries whose technologies are sensible to Space Weather effects and allows registered users to access scientific data from instrumentation available to UNITOV researchers through national and international collaborations. To non-registered users, it provides a quick-look interface ( for the selection and visualization of such data and the visualization of the forecast for flare probability and Solar Energetic Particles (SEP) fluxes from prototype codes. The SWERTO database contains data on particles fluxes from the space missions ALTEA and PAMELA, and high-resolution and full disk spectro-polarimetric solar data. The solar data are related to solar Active Regions (ARs), observed at high resolution with the IBIS (Interferometric BIdimensional Spectropolarimeter) instrument, and full disk Line-of-Sight Doppler and magnetic field at different heights in the solar atmosphere, observed with the MOTH II telescope. SWERTO main goals are: i) design and realize a data-base with the particle fluxes recorded by the space missions and with the spectropolarimetric measurement of the solar photosphere; ii) allow an Open Access to the data-base and to prototype forecast to regional industries involved and exposed to Space Weather effects; iii) implement a tutorial and a FAQ section to help decision makers to realize and evaluate the risks from Space Weather events; iv) outreach and customer products.
