Time-lapse of New York – Sandy visits

Last night a friend of mine gave me the idea of creating a time-lapse video of New York using the images by the NY-Times webcam. The video shows New York between 15:30 and 08:30 (local time) last night as Sandy hit.

I used a simple script to download one image per minute – combining a cron-job with a few lines of PHP, and used these to create a 60fps 30fps time-lapse video of the approximately 1050 images gathered so far.

I’m a webdeveloper based in Oslo, Norway. I currently work with webdevelopment as lead developer and solutions architect at Metronet.

I would like to change the world, but they won’t give me the source…
