600,000 scan satellites images for clues to jet

LONGMONT: A Colorado-based company says about 600,000 people have scanned its satellite images for clues to the fate of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner that disappeared Saturday.

DigitalGlobe is calling it a crowdsourcing campaign to help search crews. The company said Tuesday it plans daily updates of the images on the search website, http://www.tomnod.com.

Users can tag images on the website if they see wreckage, life rafts, oil slicks or other evidence.

Shay Har-Noy, DigitalGlobe's senior director for geospatial big data, says the photos had 10 million page views by yesterday afternoon.

Har-Noy calls the response overwhelming and says the company's servers are having trouble keeping up with the demand. He says US government agencies have access to its images as well.

Flight MH370 left Kuala Lumpur with 239 people on board.
