Would it really kill them to credit the imagery provider?

My guess is it would be a lot of thank you’s to DigitalGlobe and whomever was generous enough to purchase the imagery from DG, pay the proper license fee and then pay the fees to server the imagery up on the internet.

I would bet a hundred bucks their use of the imagery is a violation of terms of use, the least they could do is offer credit to the organizations they ganked it from.
