Developers are increasingly using live Web cameras at their development sites to monitor the status of their projects remotely. Companies such as EarthCam and OxBlue are working with hundreds of developers and construction companies, including Forest City Ratner and Sherwood Group, to provide detailed, high-resolution images of work sites that allow developers to monitor and correct every detail in the construction process. Developers are also using the images to create time-lapse films of construction for marketing, to keep lenders and investors up-to-date on progress, and to provide evidence in legal and contract disputes.
