Welcome to the Webcam-Network Project!
Most webcam-directories offer listings of places where webcams are located but are of no great help if you want to watch a place where no webcam is available.
We take a different approach:
We offer a listing of almost every place on earth and point you to webcams at these places (if available) and the nearest webcams available. This way you are able to find webcams as close as possible to your favorite location if there is no webcam available (yet).
Where did we get the data from?
The webcam data are kindly provided by Webcam Galore, where continuously new webcams are added and dead links are removed.
The topographical informations are kindly provided by the GEOnet Names Server, recommending using the following citation:
'Toponymic information is based on the Geographic Names Data Base, containing official standard names approved by the United States Board on Geographic Names and maintained by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. More information is available at the Products and Services link at www.nga.mil. The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency name, initials, and seal are protected by 10 United States Code Section §445.'
Based on these data we have created and are permanently updating a distance-matrix to be able to provide you the data mentioned above.
And what's next?
Feel free to use our Search for Locations, or access our database via the complete listing. There surely are places where the next webcam is thousands of kilometers away, but you may give it a try (some of these lists are huge):
