Lightning source data from the Oklahoma Lightning Mapping Array (LMA) has been ingested into NSSL's Warning Decision Support System - Integrated Information (WDSS-II) and is presented visually in several ways: as a dynamic three-dimensional plot of source data, as a dynamic three-dimensional grid of source densities and as various derived two-dimensional grids of source densities. Users can visualize the 3D structure of the in-cloud lightning densities, and its co-location with radar data and the various iso-therm levels. In this paper, we describe the processing of LMA data in WDSS-II and the creation of some multi-sensor products that use LMA data.
