It seems like cameras have been monitoring construction jobsites since film was on a roll and had to be developed. There are photos of construction being done on 1920s buildings, such as the Empire State Building, but those were done by adventurous and brave photographers who climbed the steel alongside the ironworkers, all to “get the shot.”
Twenty-five years ago, the digital age came to monitoring when Earthcam installed the first webcam in Times Square, New York. Since then, EarthCam has been developing technology that has made live cameras integral to every-day life. In the last year, EarthCam has launched new locations such as the Grand Canyon and added the latest robotic 4k camera technology to New York’s Times Square and the Statue of Liberty.
