Lightning discharge data(Answered)

Good morning!

I wanted to recommend a function that I think could be useful! It’s about lightning data and the possibilities for visualizing them! There is one site: Lightning & Thunderstorms - Map History in which you can view it, but when you need to animate the data, it is not so easy to do it. I wondered if it would be possible to insert and visualize the lightning data? They could be like crosses or dots but maybe also like a heatmap? I don’t know the possibilities of displaying this data, but I think if radar data is also available, it would be nice to get lightning data, and even maybe satellite data, if it is possible at all!

Kind Regards
