Official 9/11 Memorial Museum Tribute In Time-Lapse 2004-2014
Just days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, EarthCam CEO Brian Cury personally installed a camera to webcast the rescue and recovery for the families, and the world, to see the brave determination of first responders. As the recovery effort continued, the organisation installed more cameras to document the rebuilding and construction of the site. This commemorative time-lapse honours the victims of 9/11 and is dedicated to their families and friends by Cury, with special gratitude to the first responders and the steadfast construction teams. The EarthCam team spent countless hours maintaining the webcams for 4,617 days... and counting, providing the editorial team with over one million images to choose from when creating this two-and-a-half minute video, as well as our other commemorative World Trade Center movies. EarthCam has stated its commitment to continuing this photographic documentation to educate future generations and have donated all the images as well as the original camera to the 9/11 Memorial Museum. Find out more about the development and construction of the new World Trade Centre site in June 2014's issue of Construction Digital.
