I've added a view for smartphones and tablets. There's currently no manual switch, but it gets automatically enabled depending on the device screen size (responsive design). Like the whole rest, it's still very beta...

Seems like an issue with Google Maps itself. Try a different (newer?) Browser.

For closer investigation some more information of your system is needed.

That's an 'error' circle... 'deviation' indication... the apparent accuracy of location of that strike.. Lightning Big Grin Stroke hit somewhere inside that circle....

It seems that recently the Real-Time Lightning Map starts centered on Europe, despite previous recent visits to the page.
Yet, before it would return to the US centered view where I left it.
It this under some kind of "cookie" control where it can return to the last location?
Is it possible to use a location feature from the ISP to center the map? It seems that a lot of web sites "know" where you are based on this.
I have a link to it under my web site, and I am concerned about US viewers deciding that this is for Europe only and not attempting to drag the map over to the US.

On the first visit, the map is adjusted to position of the visitor, which is provided by a standard GeoIP database on the server. After dragging, zooming, switching stations/sound etc. a user cookie is updated. On the next call, this is used for restoring the previous map settings.

We didn't see a problem here, while testing that with different browsers. Can you test it again? FYI: You can force the GeoIP location when using private surfing in the browser or disable cookies.

Tobi,

To retest, I did the following:

I tried FF (29.0.1) "New Private Window" and it landed roughly centered on the Northern tip of Denmark.

Then I tried IE (11.0.8) "In Private" and it landed centered roughly on the Poland/Belarus border.

Fine here with IE 10,11 and latest FF...
except... IE shows no Full Screen button , and of course won't go full screen. FF is fine, if a bit slower than IE. Cookies work as explained by Tobi on both browsers, unless I clear them.

You are right, it didn't work due to server-side caching of this page. It should work now, unless using IPv6 (supported soon).

The full screen mode is implemented as described in the documentation for each browser platform, but so far I didn't find the reason why it's not working in IE. For best speed, you should use Chrome.

Today with some wonderful storms in southern USA and out in the Gulf of Mexico, I was again mesmerized by the display of storms being 'watched' by the stations here.

I flipped to the FullScreen because I had finished my other computer based stuff and immediately noticed a huge difference in display. It was if things speeded up ten fold.

Many more screen writes with all sorts of activity dancing around. I flipped back to regular screen, because it seemed so dramatically faster and more strikes being shown, and things slowed down again. Maybe a strike every five to ten seconds, and going back to the full screen brought many many more lines, strike displays and overall looked almost like a different program.

I'm using Win7 with latest updates as of yesterday, and running FireFox, latest version as of this morning's check.

In Chrome, it shows the strikes, but despite the station on / off toggle being flipped , there are no station indicators nor green/blue lines indicating participation in the strikes.

Sort of weird, but when I can run FireFox full screen for just entertainment, the configuration right now is exceptionally entertaining.

I may have discovered the behavior change in my display.

When zoomed in, many of the very active storms in the Gulf of Mexico are now showing because the map coverage area is larger.

I was laboring under the assumption that if the program were displaying a strike and the station participation line was drawn, it would be drawn IF either the strike OR the station were on screen.

This is my not understanding the program completely, since it seems that the line is ONLY drawn if the strike is displayed. Even if a participating station is in the map display area, no line is drawn or participation indicated IF the strike is not also on the screen at the same time.

The reverse is not true. That is, IF the strike is displayed, a participation line towards the station IS drawn, even if the station is not currently in the range of the map display.

This is my error, and perhaps caused some consternation with my previous post.

Thanks to another computer next to the regular one I use, I was able to figure out how the zoom level was affecting things being displayed.

Assumptions are not always good, obviously.

The great storms in the Gulf and near Florida helped me figure this out.

Why my station position (green point) is wrong place in real time lightning window ? It is app. 2 kilometers south from right position.
Does it any matter ?

Here's what I've written in the internal forum:
(2014-05-17, 06:51)Tobi Wrote: For privacy reasons the station coordinates on the map are rounded. There's no reason to see the exact position on this map, so I the stations are now hidden on higher zoom level.

It's just a compromise. We can also add an option for participants to show the exact coordinates of their stations to the public...
