The map is based on the data in OpenStreetMaps, which is a crowd-created map database - the 'wikipedia of map data' at www. openstreemap.org
So, if the info on a particular lighthouse hasn't been added to openstreetmap by someone yet, then it won't appear on the animated map of lighthouses.
Anyone can add things to the map, via the openstreetmap.org website (just like wikipedia is edited by members of the public). If your favourite lighthouse is not there, try creating an account on openstreetmap.org and adding it!
