CAMS coverage (yellow) and others (green) on map of total hours of sunshine.

Contact Peter Jenniskens for details if you like to participate. Pete Gural has build a one-camera version of CAMS which can be used to add cameras to an existing CAMS network, up to 16 on one PC, or set up a separate CAMS network elsewhere. He has put all software elements in place for a single user to be able to calibrate and operate the camera and view the results. Dave Samuels has developed scripts to run this software autonomously. The map below shows which areas are covered already.

Instructions on how to set up a new camera or network.

Camera coverage area in the United States for the high-resolution NASA's Cameras for Allsky Meteor Surveillance project (CAMS). Mid-Atlantic, Florida and the Arkansas areas are only partially covered, as are the areas of the Brazil and South Africa networks. More cameras are welcome to participate. Also shown are areas covered by the low-resolution all-sky cameras of NASA's Allsky Fireball Network (open circles) run from NASA MSFC, and the related ASGARD network operated by UWO.
