80 Million Bolts of Lightning
A Month of Lightning is an interactive map of all 80,305,421 lightning strikes that occurred across the globe in May 2013.

Mapping 80 million data points on a digital map is not an easy task. However when Mapbox’s Eric Fischer created the Most Detailed Tweet Map Ever he also built & released an open sourced tool called Tippercanoe for making vector tiles from large data sets.
Jordan Rousseau was able to use Tippercanoe to process the May 2013 lightning data from Weather Decision Technologies. The result is this impressive Mapbox map which allows you to view over 80 million global lightning strikes from just one month.
You can read more about how the map was made in Jordan’s blog post, Visualizing a Month of Lightning.

LighteningMaps is a live Google Map of lightning strikes across the globe. Animated flashing circles light-up on the map to record each lightning strike so it is easy to see where in the world electrical storms are occurring right now.
Blitzortung.org works with a community of users, who have built their own lightning receivers, to automatically display live lightning data on a Google Map.
Blitzortung.org includes instructions on how you can build your own lightning monitor and also includes instructions on how you can build your own Google Map based on the data received from a lightning monitor.
If you can’t be bothered to build your own lightning box you can always just check out Blitzortung’s live Google Map of lightning strikes. Source.
In 1990, Mongolia abandoned its 70-year-old Soviet-style one-party system in favour of political and economic reforms and multiparty elections.
Vast quantities of untapped mineral wealth have made it a target for foreign investors, transforming the country’s tiny but fast-growing economy. This rapid change has taken place against a backdrop of political wrangling and government pledges to tighten control over the country’s assets.
Once the heartland of an empire stretching to Europe under Genghis Khan, Mongolia is a landlocked country dominated by sparsely populated steppe and semi-desert.
A third of the population lives in the capital, while around 40% of the country’s workforce is nomadic, herding livestock in the extensive pasturelands.
