There was indeed an issue with IE. It has been fixed.

Hi Tobi,
Help me understand this.
I see lightining and ear too, my station and others detect that but system say is a false positive?
Something is wrong, sometimes i have thunderstorm near to my house and system continue say false positive.
I reduced gain for detect near to me and higher for detect far away from me.
Is not possible change something with false positives?
Thanks for you possible explanation.
Regards.
Miguel

I've been having issues with the Lightningmaps.org page since firefox 30 (currently firefox 33). It used to be very fluid but now the imaging is very sticky to the point of freezing the browser. I don't know the cause. Whether I have to change a setting in the browser or if something on the web page needs adjusting.

You are right, there is an issue. It will be fixed within the next days.

I followed lightning evolution in Rome during last 2 hours: blitzortung map said 25-30 strokes/min fell.... but I didn't see a single ligthining or heard a single thunder.
How is it possible?!?

Tobi, I love the real-time map- as others have said, it's mesmerizing to watch during a good storm. In fact, I ordered a kit after watching a huge storm over the Midwest USA for about 15 minutes.

I do have a question/request: is it possible to change the color or transparency of the station dots? They are very faint on my laptop, and hard to see unless the "strike-line" is still pointing to it. I have seen other requests to highlight one's own station (also a cool idea), perhaps this can be added to that update?

Thanks!

Any reason why lightningmaps.org is not tracking strikes on either chrome or IE????

My android lightningmaps.org app has the same problem, not tracking strikes. And that is exactly, showing strikes but not showing stations or tracking lines. Huh

Have I noticed a parabolic curve been introduced for tracking lines for strikes on the BO live overview map, looks cool...... Wink That curve appearing on the longer distant tracks (my longest distance being 6100 kilometres, in Oceania our averages being in the 3000 + range) which would, I imagine, reflect the curvature of the earth.

I wonder if it had anything to do with the big solar flare that happened about the same time?

There are changes going on... I strongly suspect that Tobi has to catchup with the new gnomonic (great circle) processing .... .Lightning

Egon changed the data format, but in a way I didn't expect. The lines where completely wrong. It's working again now.

I run station 1187.  Is it common that my station is not used for very close strikes?  I don't see my station used for strikes occurring closer than 200km when viewing http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime? map.

that's possible.. it may be that you have too much gain, low threshold, and are sending poor data.. If your're  aiming at 'distance', the near strikes may be 'distorted'... it's also possible to go into brief interference mode with near cell activity....  Remember, this is a 'network'... no station really stands alone...
