Continuing Current Dataset

Lightning data that filters for continuing current lightning events — the 10% of strikes with the potential to create the most damage.

    Pioneering Approach

    This is a first-of-its-kind system that compiles data from satellite-borne lightning sensors with data from the Vaisala National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) and Global Lightning Detection Network (GLD360). It’s filtered in real-time for immediate insight on potentially destructive lightning anywhere in the world.


    Single-source access

    The most complete 24/7/365 global thunderstorm and lightning data for even the most remote locations. It delivers an uptime of 99.99+%, greater than 95% for cloud-to-ground strikes, overall classification accuracy of 85-90%, and median location accuracy of less than 200m.


    Real-time precision

    Advanced data sequencing progressively filters lightning events as they are detected to eliminate the less destructive cloud-only and cloud-to-ground lightning as they occur. This identifies the most potentially destructive events, delivering real-time lightning data that includes date and time with accuracy to the millisecond, latitude and longitude, and event duration.


    Targeted response

    In what can often be a guessing game of resource deployment, knowing the precise location and duration of the lightning events with the most potential for damage helps increase the effectiveness of incident response teams and helps speed resolution.
