Hi Tobi - I like the new look however the way the station circles are now drawn makes it very hard to tell when they light up green when zoomed out as you're infilling the green circle with the same shade of green .. it's easy to see however when they light up Purple. Is there any way you can change the colour of the green infill to make visibility better?
Thanks
Ian

Ian, does yours not look like mine below? Perhaps you need to adjust the LMO display settings.

Hi Mike, Yes mine looks like yours but note you have zoomed in to level 5 which makes it easier to see the green highlighted stations. I normally use zoom level 4 as Australia has fewer stations.

any way of just having lines from a single station or similar. would be awesome to see what your station is registering. just a filter text box or something would do. or possibly if you click a station that would be the only one showing lines.

otherwise it's a freaking great map!

I've suggested that before. It would be great to be able to show only the lines from my station and suppress all the others.

Hello Joseph,

as far as I can see there are very few stations active in Africa and around. All of them seem to be listed on the Europe page of LMO. There is one each in Malawi, Namibia and South Africa and there are four stations east of Africa in La Reunion. Two are north west of Africa on Spanish and Portuguese islands. Too less stations for a dedicated region. Minimum 11 stations have to send matching signals to detect a stroke.

When new detectors are available, interested parties in poorly covered regions are supplied first.
