Margot Carlson Delogne from DigitalGlobe responds to Prakash Mirchandani:
I read with interest your posting about Egypt and the recent events in Libya, with the note that it ‘is surprising DigitalGlobe has not released any images of Libya’. We actually give any news agency our imagery in these situations, never holding that back. We haven’t to date captured much in Libya due to cloud cover and other factors.
We believe it’s critical to share insights about what is happening on the ground in dynamic situations. That’s why we are the main satellite imagery provider behind the Satellite Sentinel Project. A recent story on this was published in the Denver Post and broadcast on CNN International.
