All Eyes on Haiti

BBC Spaceman reports on how space-eyes are being used to help in the relief efforts in Haiti. He details the international charter on space and major disasters which I'd never come across but, thinking about it, of course it must have existed. As expected Map Action have been involved. Without knowing which bridges are still standing, which roads are blocked, where the people are gathering etc aid will take longer to get to those who need it.
