The original plotting system has been expanded to make it possible to count Schumann strikes in the Earths Cavity. As the day goes by the sun brings to life, three major lightening areas in the world. These are, Asia, Africa/Europe, and the Americas. The viewer program has a built in browser that can view near real time maps of the worlds weather. The view shown also has the day/night areas marked so you can see the chimneys light up as the day goes by and the sun washes over the chimney. The graph is showing count values not the normal signal level values seen on most Schumann charts. How this works is explained later in the program functions. The graph is 24 hours long and repeats each day after archiving the days collected graph.
Viewer / Archive and Real Time
The collector portion of the strike count function sits between the Lightning Radar program and the Strike Viewer. These are three independent running programs. The lightning radar program dumps a 10 minute collection of strikes with a black background. The collector program consumes this every ten minutes and counts the strikes. This is saved in a file for the Strike viewer to use in graphing the results. This allows the raw original data to be archived for later use on the calendar archive function of the viewer.
