About Blitzortung Lightning Tracker

Utilizes the Blitzortung lightning network to display near-real time lightning strikes and radar from around the world.

* Lightning station locations and detections
* Mark favorite stations to show all their detected strikes
* Weather Radar tracks for the US, Europe, and Oceania
* Range circles to show how close strikes are

Options:
* Animate lightning strikes
All lightning strikes will be shown with an increasing ring
* Show detection stations
Lines will be drawn from stations detecting a strike to the strike location
* Display location
Your location will be displayed on the map
* Max strikes displayed
Maximum number of strikes to display on the map at a single time
* Time to display strikes
Length of time to display the strikes before they fade away

Permissions:
* Location permission only used locally on the device to enable you to zoom to your current location
* No personal information is ever sent from the device to any servers

FAQ:
* What information is this app collecting on me?
No personal information is collected from the device at all.
* Why can't I see my station?
To reduce the load on the device, stations are clustered when the map zoom is very small. By zooming the map in, more stations may be visible. To always show a certain station, hold down on the station's icon until the device vibrates. That will set it to always be visible.
