Lightning Detector

MWS Lightning Detector is a network for lightning data over Central Europe. It is a pure non-commercial project free for everybody. People who want to participate need a lightning detector with directional determination of lightnings and a personal computer permanently connected to the Internet. The stations send their lightning data to our server in short time intervals. The collected data will then be used to compute the exact locations of lightnings by a bearing.

All computed coordinates of the lightnings are accessible from our server for everybody and can be used for any non-commercial further processing. This allows you, for example, to develop own applications for displaying lightning data over Central Europe on the Internet. In contrast to other lightning networks, the data we present is real time and for free.
