(Flight MH370) Thousands seek clues in satellites images
(03-12 13:45)

About 600,000 people have scanned satellite images from DigitalGlobe Inc for clues to the fate of a missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, according to the company.
Users of the website can tag images if they see wreckage, life rafts, oil slicks or other evidence.
DigitalGlobe is calling it a crowdsourcing campaign to help search crews. The company plans daily updates of the images on the search website, http://www.tomnod.com.
Shay Har-Noy, DigitalGlobe's senior director for geospatial big data, call the response “quite overwhelming.''
“Our servers are having a hard time keeping up with it,'' he said.
US government agencies have access to DigitalGlobe's images as well, he said.--AP
