You could help find the missing plane
March 13 , 2014
A Colorado company is now giving people the chance to help find the missing Malaysian Airlines flight instead of just venting frustration.
People are being offered to help scan satellite images and go to the crowdsourcing platform of DigitalGlobe in order to tag images of the ocean. The results will then be examined and areas that look most promising will be highlighted.
"We'll say, 'Here are our top 10 suspicious or interesting locations,'" a company official said. "Is it really an aircraft wing that's been chopped in half or is this some other debris floating on the ocean? We may not be 100% sure, but if this is where I had to pick a location to go looking for needles in this big haystack, this is where I'd start."
