North American Precision Lightning Network and United States Precision Lightning Network

The United States Precision Lightning Network™ (USPLN™) and North American Precision Lightning NetworkSM (NAPLNSM ) are advanced lightning detection networks providing the highest quality, most accurate real-time and archived lightning stroke data available on the market today. With over 150 sensors covering the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Caribbean, data from these networks supplies critical information to clients in the US Government, media, transportation, energy/utility, recreation, manufacturing, and consumer markets.

WSI’s lightning networks 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
  • Distinguish between cloud-to-ground and cloud lightning events
  • Deliver impressive and consistent technical metrics – 95% detection efficiency and 250 meter location accuracy for cloud-to-ground strokes throughout most of North America and delivery uptime greater than 99.99%

Global Lightning Network

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
