(Before It's News)

DigitalGlobe is truly humbled and amazed by the global response to our call to action just 48 hours ago. Following the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, we activated our Tomnod crowdsourcing platform to help locate the jet by asking volunteers to scan through imagery captured by our satellites.

More than 2 million people have tagged some 645,000 features so far, making this the largest Tomnod campaign in history by orders of magnitude.

We have continually tasked our satellites to image the ever-widening search area and now have more than 24,000 square kilometers of imagery available for the crowd to comb through. The sheer volume of traffic was a challenge at times for our servers to handle, but we are managing the spikes in activity much better now.

We will continue to collect imagery of the search area and adapt our collection plans as new information becomes available. We appreciate the work that so many of you have done to search for clues and spread the word, and we sincerely hope the efforts will lead to a breakthrough.

Keep up the great work!
