Exclamation 
In charge of an experiment in my company and member of Blitzortung community, I wish a real time interface with an internal software to use Blitzortung data flow.
Is it possible to create this link ?
Can you tell me  the steps  to create this link?

Thank you for you answers.

Please remember that Blitzortung data may not be used for commercial purposes.
General operator data access info: login to your main Blitzortung Org account, and click the 'compendium' link under 'project area'.
As a station operator, please see this recent post in the operator's internal forum
//forum.blitzortung.org/showthread.php?tid=1667
There are other threads also.

I've been trying to use some of the examples in Project Area/Compendium.  When I click on the link I'm prompted for my username and password. I've tried username/email and the password, and just username and password but still get directed to enter the data again. Obviously I'm not doing something right. 

I'm feed data from my System Blue station 1503, so I'd think I should be able to access the databases.

Tnx,
Ken

I'm making a little bit of progress - it looks like I can at least get past the log on using my VB.net code. When I send the following string I get "Invalid port specified":
http://myemail:mypassword@data2.blitzort...trikes.php

From the example in Project Area/Compendium this should retrieve the last strikes. I think I'm getting closer to retreiving data....

Hi Ken,

I am curious if you had success. I am starting to look at modifying a VB5 application that I already have to add retrieving data. I am at a loss at the moment about how to use the link data on the compendium page.

Thanks!

What I Finally did was query the log file every 10 minutes. When lightning strikes are detected within 50 miles of my location I query every 5 minutes.Here's an example string I use to query the log: 

http://data.blitzortung.org/Data_3/Protected/Strokes/2016/10/06/18/10.log 

The 18/10 is the UTC time. The log file is written every 10 minutes, and the 10 minute value is from the previous 10 min block, i.e. when the log file was started, not when it was closed.  The filename downloaded will be the 10 minute period & .log, ie. 10.log for this example.  

Hope this helps.

Ken, W7KKE

Interesting, I have been dubbing around with the PHP stuff with no success.

This really simplifies my goal. I am looking to break it down to strikes per grid square.

Thanks!
