MetaCarta GeoTagger is a web service that easily fits within a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and provides a unique ability to analyze documents for geographic references, disambiguates those references to specific locations in the world, and creates geographic tags for those documents. MetaCarta GeoTagger is capable of identifying over 7.8 million different place names around the world, providing a total coverage solution for analyzing text documents. The accuracy and global coverage of GeoTagger combine to create a solution with the highest f-measure, a balanced average of precision and recall, available in the market, as determined by an independent government systems engineering and information technology advisory group. This technology is capable of accurately tagging millions of documents a day to keep up with DIA's torrent of text data, where a manual analysis and tagging solution is not practical.
MetaCarta already has a successful track record of providing comprehensive analysis tools to many programs in the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense, and this agreement adds to those achievements.
"MetaCarta is proud to have GeoTagger as a major component of this DIA solution," said Randy Ridley, MetaCarta's Vice President and General Manager of Public Sector Systems. "Our technology enables an organization that has a significant amount of information where geography is relevant to rapidly search that information and retrieve actionable intelligence. We are dedicated to helping the DIA and all public sector organizations use geographic intelligence more effectively."
