[IDD #KZT-246763]: Fwd: LIGHTNING Feed for WIFIRE

Hi Mary,

> Sorry to bother on a holiday weekend - I think this can wait until normal
> business hours resume on Tuesday.

I saw your email when it came in and was going to answer sooner, but
I ended up taking the weekend off of work :-)

> Almost a year ago (October 2014) I had a request to allow access for a
> lightning feed from upper campus UCSD (John Graham; address@hidden).
> At that time Tom's response noted that the agreement with the lightning
> data prohibits distribution beyond the campus (UCSD).

This is still the case.

> Last night I had an e-mail from John and let me just paste it here:

You are correct, the intended purpose of the EDEX server would violate
the redistribution restriction on LIGHTNING data.

> When you have time you please advise?

You will need to inform John of the lightning redistribution policy
that is in place.  It would probably be easiest to reference the
web pages we maintain that spell out the policies imposed on the
use of the data by their respective vendors:

  Data -> Lightning

In the 'Data Feeds' section, you will see three tabs whose information
content was provided by the lightning data vendors.

> Thanks so much!

No worries.  Sorry for the slow reply...
