data.blitzortung.org issues-- 29-Sep-2017
« on: September 29, 2017, 12:43:03 PM »
The data.blitzortung.org and data.lightningmaps.org servers started responding with 302/404 to requests yesterday.

I've modified the BOmapgen-inc.php to V1.04 to put a message on all the maps saying

'Map is not current. Data from Blitzortung is not available.' 

as an overlay to the map so folks will know that the map is not current.

Just replace your BOmapgen-inc.php with this file.

Edit: replaced the file.. see below.

oops... had a slight error in the V1.04.

Please replace with attached, and it's now working on data.blitzortung.org

What's the URL to the Blitzortung display page?

I updated my site and three Regional sites with the V1.04 and all are now showing data (and the 'Map is not current.' message has disappeared on all the images that have data).

Hi Paul,

When I looked, only the first two images in the .gifs showed the 'No Data' marking.  The rest were normal (with data).  So the script did what it was supposed to--age out the no-data images automatically.  Hopefully, blitzortung.org data will remain flowing, but if it doesn't, we're prepared to automatically display when loss of data happens :)

As usual, thanks, Ken, for the update!  Much appreciated. =D> =D>

Loaded on my site but hoping it isn't needed. :-)

Thanks, Ken. I also installed it on my site, it seems to be working. It is also good that they have fixed data.blitzortung.org. I recently changed it to data.lightningmaps.org when it wasn't updating, per your advice.
