A commercial satellite-imagery company said Tuesday it is rerouting one of
its satellites to fly over the Oregon wilderness where rescue crews search
for CNET editor James Kim.

GeoEye's Ikonos satellite will fly over the Western seaboard at about 10:30
a.m. PT Wednesday at a distance from the Earth of about 423 miles, said
Mark Bender, a spokesman for the Dulles, Va.-based GeoEye. The satellite
could record images of an area as large as 2,000 square kilometers.

The cameras on the Ikonos could once boast the world's highest resolution,
able to get a bead on objects 39 inches wide.
