“We are very pleased to be bringing this capability to the marketplace,” said Andre Doumitt, Geosemble’s CEO. “Currently, the Internet brings you all things from all places, but with GeoXray, users can more quickly focus on the topics that are important to them, as well as key influencers, source credibility and sentiment analysis for their area of geographic responsibility,” he said.
Given a fixed geographic territory, it becomes very difficult for organizations to manage the volume of data that exists and gets created every day on the Internet and in social media. Therefore, the ability to filter news, tweets, blogs, and social media by both topic and location has great value, and applies broadly to municipalities, counties, school districts, sports teams, law enforcement, congressional districts, corporations with sales territories, as well as civilian and military federal government agencies.
With this newest release, GeoXray filters for both topic and location and can save significant staff research time by helping organizations minimize threats and capitalize on opportunities that might otherwise go unnoticed.
As an underlying technology component in the GeoXray software suite, TopicGenius, and its corollary PlaceGenius, play an important role by applying patented, and patent-pending term-frequency, text-matching technology as part of a dual-correlation process that extracts, processes and correlates information about places. PlaceGenius integrates incoming unstructured text from Internet and proprietary sources and associates it with an enhanced geographic knowledge base. TopicGenius focuses on geographically faceting topics as identified by a user-defined set of tags. The result is then displayed in GeoXray’s own user-friendly interface, or via an API for consumption in other software programs.
GeoXray can also tap into the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) public web service to get geographic information about places that can then be linked to news, blogs and other social media; set up custom alerts filtered for a user’s topics of interest in a given location and deliver it to a desktop or mobile device. GeoXray also provides a “content view” mode that is map-optional that delivers content about a user’s pre-selected area in a “what’s happening here today” mode; as well as a host of other computer aided analysis features.
GeoXray™ is a software product that spatially enables unstructured text from the internet and other sources so that viewers can geographically “see” what’s related to a particular area of interest, either in a map view or as a list of textual content. Integrating news, blogs, tweets, Youtube and an organization's proprietary data, the system gives users a “triple filter” of sorting by location, by topic and by time so that users can start with a place they care about and learn about things they’re interested in. The output of GeoXray can be viewed in its own native GeoXray viewer or tapped via an API and displayed on a variety of systems.
