[HOT] Shapefile of Areas in Pakistan where we need imagery?

See this map I've put together:
...showing imagery we have in blue.

The area in red is my vague idea for an area of imagery we could request. That 
would extend the area we have eastwards away from the Indus, to cover some other 
settlements in the Sindh province. But it depends what resolution we're talking 
about. I think this kind of area would make sense if the new imagery is on a par 
with the existing SPOT imagery.

It may be that RapidEye can offer us hi-res imagery more like Yahoo!, in much 
smaller  areas, in which case we might want to request some towns which are  
already within the SPOT imagery area (since SPOT is lowish resolution)

I'd like to echo this request. I've just today been approached by a marketing 
rep from RapidEye who seemed quite excited to give us imagery, provided we could 
specify exactly where we needed it.

Does anyone have the capacity to work out what footprint we should request from
