Lightning strikes map layer

Lightning

Image showing lightning strike frequency, in strikes per minute, presented as a single tile map overlay.

Images are updated every 15 minutes with a 15 minute delay due to processing times.

The map layer is provided without a map, the boundary box for this image is 48° to 61° north and 12° west to 5° east.

The image layers are currently made available in a Mercator projection, it is the same projection used by Bing maps, OpenStreetMap, Google maps, MapQuest, Yahoo maps, and others.
