nowcast is constantly expanding its lightning detection network LINET. In the past 12 months, nowcast has doubled its installation rate. Recently, the 550th LINET sensor was released from nowcast’s production facility.
New networks were established in the USA, Australia, Turkey, Mexico, Thailand, South Korea and China. Also, the European network has been expanded at into previously uncovered territory. Other parts of the world are under development with the objective of covering the whole world with a high-precision lightning detection network.
The world map shows all countries where nowcast is currently able to deliver high-precision lightning data. If your country or region is not among these, an existing network close by can be extended or a new, self-contained network can be established.
