Maasvlakte-cam, Rotterdam - Its alive!
« on: August 30, 2009, 09:22:45 AM »
It seems that one of the most interesting and busy maritime cams has returned.  The cam is in Rotterdam and covers a wide area and includes the sea.  There is much activity though it may seem quiet at times.   Also very interesting in heavy weather.  You can relax and truly watch ships for hours.  The cam is still a TrueLookCam and performs quite well.

I just found one more AIS site thanks to Phyllis (5/29), it seems to work really well with this cam.
Great for photos of the ships and seems closer to real time and more detailed than some.

I still can't believe it returned but am very thankful.  Enjoy.
Sorry I haven't posted here for a long time I still care about all of you.

I am glad it worked.  Once its up it usually is fine.

I have a quick off-topic question for you.  Does anyone know if the Vancouve Convention Center TrueLookCam will ever return?
That also was a great cam and helps give a sense of place like the Maasvlkte cam.
