Hi John, Blake and all,

Looks like you managed to open the imagery?
Thank you Blake for the clarifications! I do follow you also completely, in
my view the Nextview is indeed better aligned.

We will make sure to upload some more traces as soon as possible.
Travelling today and tomorrow, so thursday and friday you can expect some

Thanks a lot for the mapping but also for the validation, important task!

Best greetings,
