Live Map Overlay

In the above article, a GIF appears that shows your (North American) map with seemingly real-time strikes (with the ray and ripple effects), though when I load the live map all I see is a static map. I've checked and unchecked Strikes, Detectors, and Sounds, but nothing seems to reproduce the articles experience. http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=en works fine for me.

I'm using Firefox 30.0, but it doesn't work in IE either.

Thanks for any insight!

The main page of this site (linked-to at The Vane's post) does, indeed, present live data - though at times I think it's down while being worked on. I'm pretty sure both sites are optimized for the Chrome browser, though.

Everything is still in a very early stage (beta), but so far it should work on all browsers, even with IE. We do not optimize for specific browsers, but in most times Chrome is the fastest with such graphics/maps.

However, the maps on Blitzortung.org are using the websocket method with non-standard ports which is may not accessible due to a proxy or firewall.

Hi,

I run a blog dealing with environmental/climate news and would love to embed this map if I am able? Of course I would fully cite and link back to the original here. If anyone could give me a hand with the embed code I would really appreciate the help.

Thanks
