The Lightning Incident Archive Search (LIAS) Service offers instantaneous access to anyone interested in past lightning events, including homeowners, engineers, investigators, insurance companies, and meteorologists. LIAS Reports can be purchased through the LIAS Service website. The LIAS engine accesses the past 10 years of historical USPLN lightning based on user-specified coordinates or address, time range, and size of region. LIAS Reports are generated within seconds of payment verification through PayPal®. Lightning events that meet the search criteria are delivered in a formatted report document, an Excel®-compatible file list, and, exclusively to the LIAS Service, a Google Earth™ compatible overlay.
Special introductory pricing of $75 per report is available for a limited time only!
Other Archival Data
In contrast to real-time data, archival or historical lightning is data that is older than 24 hours from time of detection. Historical lightning data is very valuable for forensic analysis and investigations, longer-term logistical and operational planning, statistical research, and integration with market information.
Archived lightning data can be obtained in a variety of ways and formats, for large or small areas. In most cases, archives can include all available data parameters or a reduced set. Data from the USPLN archives are available from mid-2005 to current day, with extended North American regions available from late 2008. There are several delivery options:
Premium license upgrades to real-time data services;
Data files that can be ingested into commercial or custom software;
Graphical images of lightning data overlaid on a map;
Bulk data sets that can be integrated with business data for statistical analysis;
Customized data sets and graphical presentations.
