Abstract
All Sky Cameras were deployed at all Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) candidate sites. The images gathered by these cameras were used to assess the cloud statistics for each site. We describe two methods that were developed to do this, a manual method based on inspection of blue and red movies, and an automated method based on photometric analysis of the images.
