Please forgive my lack of knowledge.  I use this website frequently to help determine where wildland fires may start in my region during fire season.  The problem I have is that, if I am not monitoring this site constantly as a storm passes, and plotting the strikes separately, then the information is lost once the strike drops off the map.  It would be of enormous help to me to be able to see strike data for a specific region aver the past 6-12, maybe even 24 hours.  Is there a way to do this?  If so, how?  If not, is it something you folks would ever consider implementing?

Either way, please know that a great many of us in the farm/ranch community are very grateful that this site exists.  Fires often don't take off and burn for several hours after a strike, and it's wonderful to have some data to help us focus our watch efforts.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, storage of, and access to, archival lightning impulse data requires unbelievable server / host memory capacity and CPU power.  Within limits, such archived data is ONLY available to active project station owners.  The Public Data is limited, and generally displayed ONLY for the last two hours. At any given moment, the Real-Time processing alone may use several collecting and processing servers.

Blitzortung may be classed as a non-profit, volunteer, Citizen Science project, and not an 'accredited' or 'official' source for lightning data, hence some additional 'limitations' installed publicly. Please see https://www.blitzortung.org/cover_your_area.php  and  https://www.blitzortung.org/contact.php
