NASA + USAID = A Better World (From Space)

This is a really great way to combine satellite imagery with important on-the-ground applications! Does the NASA imagery that you’re using (presumably Landsat and MODIS?) get updated frequently enough for these use cases? It might be helpful for you to look at the emerging nanosatellite companies like Planet Labs, which are beginning to provide high-frequency/fast-revisit imagery. Not all applications need this, but a smart combination of different imagery sources (at different resolutions, update rates, and coverage areas) could enable you to do even more.
