 First, some information:

The type and polarity of new strikes are indicated by symbols,  as illustrated in the legend. Dots that fade in color  from yellow through  dark red indicate older strikes.

 There are several controls on the map for your use.  Thirty or Sixty minute history can be displayed with the push of a button.  You can zoom out on the range of the map.  There is also a feature to run a loop of the latest archived data.

The following image is generated via the StrikeStar system.  A community of amateurs running NexStorm lightning detector software. They are linked together via a network which uses a triangulating positioning system to determine the location of lightning strikes. It isn't perfect but sometimes gives good results.
