It would be very useful to have a daily updated set of satellite
images in disaster-affected areas. They could be used to plan mass
distributions of food and water, for instance. Utilities could see
everything from the sky. Overlays for before/after comparisons, etc.

||[-] not because its a bad idea, but because its
completely baked. Multiple service
providers at various levels of quality and price
Hurricane Center, ZoomEarth, EOS LandViewer,
others. As an aside,satellite imagery still isnt
as good as aerial photography.
||A straight line, up and along, jet engine/rocket motor drone giving a local scan? A 1:32 cut down replica SR-71 Blackbird so to speak.
||"Fresh Hurricane Satellite Images"... didn't know
they go off.
||My Nan used viniger to stop them going off.
||a. I figure this is something that they don't have.
||b. I presume this is a bit different from what [a1] is
showing, even though I have no idea how new the
ZoomEarth images are, and am not sure what the diff
between your idea and [a1]'s anno is.
||c. I still have no idea what "they go off" means or is
referring to in the anno's here. Not my fault, I grew up in a
Hebrew speaking environment.
||[pashute] English speakers sometimes use off to
mean something is wrong, or bad. Thus, to go off in this
context means to become stale, not fresh.
