There are two ways to query lightning parameters. You can either query a lightning density, i.e. the number of lightning strikes within a certain radius, or a list of lightning strikes within a bounding box of your choice.
Lightning strike densities can be queried for an area within a certain radius around a coordinate point. Queries are available either via point or grid queries.
To query lightning lists, you can use either WFS to easily integrate the data into existing frameworks or a specific list query as it is shown below. The output then lists all lightning flashes between the start and end date within the given bounding box.
