Many professional and public service entities utilize the power of weather tracking tools. The NOAA reports that lightning electricity can measure up to 300 million volts, 200,000 amps and increase air temperature to greater than 60,000 degrees Fahrenheit. It can strike multiple people at one time, which is why the following businesses rely on lightning strike detection and mapping system API.
To increase air travel safety, airports rely on real-time weather data to
- Maintain air and ground protection
- Reroute flights
- Ground planes and cancel flights
Lightning storms are particularly dangerous to airplanes and airports. They can disable flight and ground equipment or render it inaccurate.
Lightning increases the electrical flow through wiring when nearby, and it blows out electrical components upon strikes. Lightning strike detection and a mapping system help keep those working in the field safe. It also helps keep customers lit during a storm, as location-specific predictive software can help electric companies prepare for outages and engage their emergency protocols.
Local, state and federal governments have emergency management agencies whose sold purposes are to
- Prepare for a disaster
- Plan for avoidance and recovery
- Respond to a disaster
Should a severe storm hit, these agencies must be able to coordinate disaster-relief efforts immediately and seamlessly. Tracking weather accurately allows the agencies to
- Predict potential problems
- Issue storm warnings
- Coordinate rescue efforts where necessary
This is crucial to the safety of all citizens.
