I understand, you can use it as an educational tool, but you would need to
restrict access to the "lightning" pages to just (*.bgsu.edu) no external
viewing, and not allow linking to the "outside world".

This is a huge and sticky issue..we have been blessed with a free feed of
this data via Global Atmospherics and Vaisala. We do NOT want to do
anything that would jeopardize this feed as it has been going so nicely
for so long.. GAI was purchased by Vaisala and they never "re-did" the
agreement, so it is tenuous at best..hence the caution!

Keep in mind we are funded by NSF, not many rich folks around here!

As long as you ratchet it down so it DOES NOT VIEW outside of
your physical campus location, you should be AOK to go.

I will begin the feed request..
