Web cameras or web cams (also known as spy cams) are linked to a computer with
special software and hardware which enables the camera to transmit a picture or
moving image digitally, and then via an Internet connection, onto the Web. Some
web cameras are video cameras which update their screen images in a matter of
seconds, or a few minutes; others are still digital cameras programmed by the
operator to take pictures at regular intervals.

Images may be live and continuous, or selectively transmitted several times
a day, depending upon the operator, the camera, and the Internet connection.


Often, web cams are not operative after dark, show only a black image, or post
a representative image from the preceding daytime images. For maximum
enjoyment, plan your travels during the daytime in the localities you visit!

G.M.T. (Greenwich Mean Time) is 5 hours ahead of U.S. eastern standard time
and 8 hours ahead of pacific standard time. Note that local time may prevail
in some areas, that daylight savings time is now observed in most of the U.S.
(+1 hour, which means 4 hours behind G.M.T.), and that seasons are reversed
in northern and southern hemispheres.

NOTE: This will soon be made into a table, so that the formatting is consistent
on different browsers and with different fonts.
