⭐StormVue GEN-3 is a Javascript application and uses WebGL libraries for super-efficient hardware accelerated graphics rendering. Live lightning data is sourced from the Data Server application which runs alongside NexStorm on Windows.

🔥🔥 In StormVue GEN-3 - Storm display mode, the new VirtuaCB™ feature will render mini-Cumulonimbus clouds on tracked thunderstorm locations and emulate real world in-cloud and cloud to ground lightning as it is detected by NexStorm.


⭐The Data Server runs alongside NexStorm and will continuously upload the most recent lightning data to the Internet or a shared network location, enabling a fast 4 second update rate.

🔥🔥 A new Data Server upload mode and the included vortex.php processing script provides a secure uploading alternative to FTP. Vortex.php can optionally also serve data to StormVue GEN-3 app. (requires PHP support on website)
