When tragedy happens people generally come together and this applies to the missing Malaysian Flight MH370, as governments and people all over the world work frantically to find the aircraft that just seems to have disappeared.

Malaysian authorities, on the other hand, seem to have generated nothing but confusion and ill will in the hunt for Flight MH370. Now a Colorado company offers a way for people to do more than vent frustration—they can help scan satellite images, reports the Denver Post. DigitalGlobe wants people to go to its crowdsourcing platform to look at and tag images of the ocean that look promising. An algorithm will then examine results and highlight any areas generating an unusual number of tags, explains ABC News.

“We’ll say, ‘Here are our top 10 suspicious or interesting locations,’” says a company official. “Is it really an aircraft wing that’s been chopped in half or is this some other debris floating on the ocean? We may not be 100% sure, but if this is where I had to go pick a location to go looking for needles in this big haystack, this is where I’d start.” Of course, the satellite images are based on authorities’ best guesses on where the plane might be, and those seem to be changing daily.

    It must be nighttime in the part of the world because I can’t see anything.
