To document the construction of the National September 11 Memorial Museum, "EarthCam has captured 4,617 days of footage, cutting more than a million images into a timelapse that shows how the 16-acre site has transformed since 2004," explains Shaunacy Ferro.

On the YouTube page for the video below, EarthCam CEO and Founder Brian Cury says he personally installed the camera and that resulting video is dedicated to the families and friends of the victims of 9/11.

Says Cury: " I hope this time-lapse serves as a way to recognize that for the 10 years of construction, there was constant progress made to rebuild these important 16 acres of America."
