The skyline views reach nearby downtown landmarks, including the upcoming Iowa City Art Festival, and as far as out as the airport, Mercy Hospital, and the intersection of Highways 1 and 218. The quality of the video is amazing and the zoom feature lets people get close to all the action across the city. It’s a new way for residents, future students, alumni and anyone with an interest in Iowa City to zip around the city in a couple of minutes.
“The cameras are for the enjoyment of everyone, and we are excited to make them available over the internet. I think it will bring excitement and help retain a connection to the city and its events for those that are here and those that have left the area,” says Robert Long of MetaCommunications, the operator of the webcams. “Our company’s intent is to attract and retain talent in the Iowa City area as well as connecting with alumni and letting them know about the high tech employment opportunities right here in Iowa City.”
