Hi Dan,

The instructions for job 568 apparently contain an error, maybe from a
copy-paste from task 574, which is the one supposed to be based on
DigitalGlobe/Mapbox image, and contains a correct link in its
instructions (for its area).

I think that job 568 was originally intended to use Bing high resolution

Best wishes,
