Longmont-based DigitalGlobe crowdsources Nepal relief efforts

· Apr. 28, 2015, 5:01 pm

Longmont-based DigitalGlobe is crowdsourcing relief efforts in Nepal, enlisting the public's help in tagging areas of destruction following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Its Tomnod platform allows people around the globe to compare before and after photos to tag collapsed buildings, blocked roads and other such sites, the Denver Post reports. Response teams on the ground will use the information to guide their efforts. Meantime, more reports are coming in of Coloradans feeling either the punch of Saturday's massive earthquake, or the fury of a subsequent avalanche at Mt. Everest basecamp.
