[osgeo-ph] USGS Now Offers OrbView-3 High-Resolution Images for Free
>From the post:
The U.S. Geological Survey has partnered with GeoEye to provide
OrbView-3 one-meter satellite images from between 2003 and 2007 for
free download via the USGS EarthExplorer. You may recall that the
OrbView-3 satellite was put out of service in 2007 due to a
malfunction of electronics, and has since been guided to a controlled
reentry in the Pacific Ocean.
