LightningMaps.org: Real-time Lightning Map
#36
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.
