Lightning location?
#1
Hi everyone,

I am doing an analysis of lightning and was wondering whether there is some "relatively" exact location of the lightning available (such as the latitude and longitude) or if I need to estimate this from the map. (I know the location is not exact but does Blitzortung provide at least an estimate?)

Thank you very much!
