Oak Ridge & Vicinity Web Cams

There could be more cams now. There once was a Neighborhood Windmill Web Cam page.

These Cams all belong to other sites. All credits go to the original sites for providing the images. The images here are linked to the original sites, and are brought together here for the purpose of a "panoramic view" of the area, with review and commentary. Therefore, this should be allowable "fair use." If you see it differently, let me know.

Technically, this page is an exception to the "no web bugs" rule. The original sites' logs will show requests for their images when they are viewed here; however, there is no coordinated tracking (as far as I know).

The images do not all automatically reload here, so hit Reload for this page or follow the links to the original sites to get the images to update.

Nothing like re-organizing every couple years...

Oak Ridge A. K. Bissel Park Ampitheater

More Oak Ridge City Webcams.

Look Rock Cam
View to East from Look Rock
, at the western end of Great Smoky Mountains National Park (aerial view). The web site has weather and air quality (ozone). This location is pitch dark at night (and very grey in heavy fog). Why was this web cam, and associated site, down all the time years ago (12/14/01)?!
Other National Park webcams

temperature cam
This apparently originates at the Claxton Building at the UTK campus in Knoxville, home of the Innovative Computing Laboratory and Netlib, but I found it here. It's also linked to from Jack Dongarra's page there, so maybe it's his.

Knoxville Public Building Authority Worlds Fair Park WebCAM. Link had other views. Located about here (or Aerial View).

Melrose Avenue from Melrose Hall at UTK (Knoxville). Streaming again, after Asking for login again... after being Back streaming again, after a brief period of asking for a login...

It's just down Melrose Ave. from the old Hess Hall Webcam (more map/view links below).

More UTK Campus Webcams

Nashville Window Webcam from Midnight Cheese

Formerly the Hess Hall Webcam.
Old home page
(now at archive.org) still has partial archive of cam pictures from Hess Hall at UTK (Knoxville). Click for real home page with diary and more. According to my triangulations and calculations, this cam was located right about here (or aerial view here).

The UTK bookstore has a computer store with a webcam and a list of more cams on campus. The bookstore pages seem improved lately. They were filled with javascript and apparently numerous pre-loading images, which nearly broke my browsers. The webcam still doesn't work for me (now requires Java?), however. The computer/bookstore at UTK is located about here, in the university center (aerial view).

Windmills on horizon First was the closest thing to a TVA Windmill cam.

In previous years, when there were only 3 "smaller" windmills, I never saw the windmills in the cam images, although it was pointed in the right direction.

As seen in the photo excerpt from 2006-May-14, with the new improved cam, on a clear day you can (barely) see the windmills on the distant ridge. In the live cam (below) you are seeing the far (second) ridge on the horizon if, well, you see 2 ridges. Otherwise, on cloudier days you only see the closer local in-town ridge (or less). At night, well, there's only the lights at the mall.

Live cam image
was courtesy of NOAA Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division. Their building and camera are roughly located about here, and the view is about to northwest over the Oak Ridge mall area. (aerial view)

Note: No longer updating here.

Site now requires Java, but offers remote control, live cam. (or once did)

Was Smoky Mountain Mall cam in Gatlinburg. Located about here; or aerial view of general location (?).
Now at Almost Heaven Resort, which is a bit closer to the National Park, about here; or aerial view.

There once was a Web Cam at ORNL's site of the SNS, but now the site says, "We are sorry but we have removed all of our webcams."

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office Jail in Clinton, TN (Aerial View) had a streaming jailcam, and an on-line tour. On 2006-11-27 the jailcam was discontinued, as explained in their announcement (retrieved 2006-11-29).
Salon cam at Salon Byron Barker in Knoxville, located about here, went pay-per-view (and is not responding as of July 5, 2004; still not October 24, 2004).
