Sky News - accuracy of data
#1
Hi all,

Adam here from Sky News. We had a horrible incident last night in the UK where a boy was killed by a lightning strike. I wanted to ask about the accuracy of the mapping and how much margin of error there is likely to be? 

I am considering taking a screenshot to show lightning strikes happening in the area around the time of the incident.

Thanks for your help

Margin of COMPUTED assumed error could be calculated using the "Deviation" number for any stroke.
From the 'Real-Time' Vector Maps, for example... the actual 'ground point' physical location can vary greatly.
