[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.


The resolution is not of street level resolution but the imagery is
still useful for various applications.  I've seen several good ones in
the Philippines.
