Fred's links to webcams
Introduction Fred's Favorites
This web page is basically links to webcams that I have looked at in 2008 and was impressed enough to
bookmark (pretty low threshold). I've added a few comments about them. The links are basically
imported from my bookmarks and edited a bit. They are in some mixture of the order they were bookmarked
with some moved up and sort of put in alpha order by location. First links were found in April 2008.
I added to it a few times since.
BROKEN LINKS Webcam links seem to break more often than web links in general. I have not
fixed or removed many broken links tho some have been tagged "BROKEN".
Also many links here only have a URL with an IP address (e.g. http://184.108.40.206/view/view.shtml )
which tend to break since they can not be changed easily.
12/16/18 I have not checked but almost all links here now seem to be broken...
I did find one downtown Mpls working (as of this moment) webcam: The River Towers, downtown Minneapolis Minnesota USA
What webcams show depends on time of day where they are located;
particularly outdoor webcams (most) where darkness usually reduces
what can be seen. The World Daylight map
is useful when choosing webcams to view.
For a number of webcams - particularly the Danish road webcams, I've used google maps **
to locate the exact spot where the webcam shows (Satellite view). Typically I get close
by entering name of place and roads and then pan around and zoom in to find the spot.
The "Gmap" link goes to a zoomed in satelite view of the area the camera sees.
You can back out to get context / switch to map mode etc.
** Google: location privacy concerns There are reports that Google continues to track a user's location
even if the location history is switched off.
List of credible alternatives to Google Maps (and other apps) that actually respect your privacy.
Why would you use OpenStreetMap if there is Google Maps?
Open Street Map.org ( short URL: osm.org )
Highlight: Fred's I-35W bridge construction archive of close shots on 6/18/08
Note. This is the replacement of the famous bridge that collpased in 2007. Construction is complete so the
webcams of construction are now closed.
A few general webcam comments can be found in this blog entry. My Link Page (home page)
This is a rather informal endeavor so this page and the blog entry are not very polished.
KEY to some abbeviations used in this file sometimes
BROKEN site no longer working. Note that it may just be URL has changed and the webcam is still
available at a different URL that I am unaware of. I often only have IP addr based urls which are prone to breaking.
Note: Asterisk in column one are Fred's favorites (as of 1/09) Also listed separately: Favorites
Some webcams have two links, a link to the webcam page which opens in the second "cam" window.
If there is a Gmap link it opens in a third window/tab called "map".
If you want to go to more than one webcam, you probably want to come back to the
"Camlist" window (this page) and the new cam (and map) will overlay the first cam and map.
This seems to work fine with the Firefox browser that I use.
