Estimado Jean-Guilhem,

En la misma linea de las preguntas de Mikel (No me quedo del todo claro con
la respuesta de David), ¿Tienes alguna claridad sobre la liberación de la
licencia de GeoEye una vez que sus imágenes estén disponibles? (Obviamente
la frase: "5 disasters since Haiti and none of them received the same
attention and dedication as Haiti" me preocupa)

El resto de las imágenes ya disponibles están bien, pero la alta resolución
es muy necesaria para avanzar en el trazado y etiquetado de todos los
pueblos de la zona afectada.

Gracias todos por su ayuda y cooperación.

Dear Jean-Guilhem,

In the same line of Mikels questions (I did not see it clear on Davids
response), Are you clear on the liberation of GeoEyes data license once
their imagery is available? (Obviously the phrase "5 disasters since Haiti
and none of them received the same attention and dedication as Haiti"
concerns me)

The already available images are alright, but high resolution imagery is
quite necessary to trace and tag all the towns on the affected area.

Thank you all for your help and cooperation.
