Global Lightning NetworkHigh quality, real-time lightning detection data is now available for locations around the world from a single source, the Global Lightning Network® (GLN®). While lightning has significant value as a supplement to radar for identifying and evaluating convective activity, it is an essential source of information where radar is not available. There are many instances where disruptive weather events put people and property at risk, and additional weather coverage can be vital to improving the outcome of these events. Data and services from the Global Lightning Network are a major component of the solutions meeting critical weather information needs.
Data from the GLN has the timeliness, coverage, and delivery to support critical business operational requirements in key deployment areas, without compromising quality, accuracy, and efficiency. Real-time data from the network is provided seamlessly via the Internet, in the same manners as the USPLN and NAPLN Products and Services, in less than a minute of event detection.
In the following key deployment areas, GLN detection efficiency values are as high as 90-95% with corresponding location accuracies less than 1 km:
