I've never seen this before and now I know what it's like searching for a needle in a fricking huge haystack. This website Tomnod supplies satellite photos of the search area. Users will then tag anything they think looks like what the searchers on the ground are looking for. That information is then forwarded to the searchers on the ground.

This specific search is for a small plane that went down in Idaho on the 6th. Pilot reported loss of engine.
