Interplanetary shock waves have a paramount role for solar-terrestrial physics. In particular, shocks driven by solar eruptions accelerate particles to high energies and turbulent post-shock flows often cause intense geomagnetic storms. IPShocks is the largest and the most comprehensive online database of interplanetary shocks measured by major space missions for over a 40 years timespan. It is a responsive mobile-first web application that has searching and sorting tools based on the spacecraft, time range, and several key shock parameters, data plots for each shock and data download options. Nowadays, it is a primary source of shocks data for space research community.
