Yes, I know, Ingres is a database once...but with two "s"s it's a game (one you need an invitation to, apparently). It's a game I don't really understand, but also a game for which I don't believe I'm the target market.
FEMA had the Civil Air Patrol, take aerial imagery in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts on Oct 31 2012. It is looking for help from volunteers to categorize images from Hurricane Sandy.
Over the last two years, DigitalGlobe set out to expand the company’s ability to download imagery quicker and cover more of the earth’s surface within a shorter window of time. The result is a much shorter period of time between data collection to product delivery. I sat down with Jeff Culwell, DigitalGlobe's director of Satellite Control Systems, at his office in Longmont, Colorado, for a better understanding of how the improvements were accomplished.
