Bing will be our primary imagery provider (hopefully - tbc)

But in the case where we can't get Bing imagery for a specified area at all or 
in a timely manner - we want to have a secondary channel so that we are not 
hedging all of our bets on Bing.

If you or Mikel could please send me the supplier info that would really help.

Hey Sam,

I'd all suggest trying to get the imagery for free first.  This
obviously won't work everywhere but could hurt.

HOT usually doesn't buy imagery, I got close to actual purchasing it
from a supplier at one point, but then Bing announced we could use

I can send you the supplier info I have though, I believe it is the
same one that Mikel utilized in the past.
