Thousands volunteer to scour satellite images of Nepal quake | Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 4,500 people have volunteered to examine 14,000 square kilometres of satellite imagery collected over Nepal to help relief efforts after Saturday's earthquake killed more than 3,900 people, imagery provider DigitalGlobe Inc ( DGI.N ) said. DigitalGlobe spokesman Turner Brinton said the company captured clear imagery of the area on Monday with its WorldView-3 satellite that was being used by volunteers to tag damaged buildings, roads and other areas to help disaster teams on the ground. The company, based in Longmont, Colo., said it had made its high resolution imagery of the affected areas available to relief groups and other responding to the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake. #Economy #Sports #India #Middle East #markets #Africa #Italy #Argentina #Copyright
