Global Lightning Network
The Global Lightning Network® (GLN®) is the leading source of high quality, real-time lightning detection data for locations throughout the world. The GLN is comprised of advanced lightning stroke detection sensors strategically located at international hosting partner sites. Data from the GLN has the timeliness, coverage, and delivery to support critical business operational requirements without compromising quality, accuracy, and efficiency in Asia, Australia and Europe. Lightning detection data is also available for oceanic and other continental regions.
WSI’s GLN lightning network can:
- Supply data without delay thanks to diverse format and delivery options facilitating integration into existing systems and applications.
- Provide the most comprehensive lightning detection information including individual cloud-to-ground strokes
- Deliver valuable information to countries without the infrastructure to monitor lightning activity
- Compile lightning data where there is no other reliable or readily available weather information
