New Partnership with Baron Services for Lightning Data

  • Jan 06, 2015

At the American Meteorological Society’s (AMS) Meeting and Conference in Phoenix this week, we are announcing our partnership with Baron Services to deliver the most complete and precise lightning strike information to motorists, pilots, boaters and broadcasters across the U.S. and beyond.

“Baron Services switched to Earth Networks after an extended and extensive evaluation of all available lightning data providers. Baron Services found Earth Networks to have excellent lightning detection efficiency and location accuracy, while offering comprehensive lightning detection from the Earth Networks Total Lightning and Global Lightning Networks,” says Baron Services Chief Development Officer Bob Dreisewerd.


With the new partnership, real-time total lightning data from Earth Networks’ Pulse API data feed will be integrated into Baron Services’ software and systems. Earth Networks patented lightning-based alerts will be implemented in the future. The data, as part of Baron’s full suite of data products, delivers critical weather intelligence that helps ensure public safety and supports critical decision making by aiding everyone from commuters to recreational boaters to pilots. The data will also benefit Baron’s local television broadcast clients as they deliver weather information to over two-thirds of the U.S. population.
