GeoLocator 2.0 promises commercial customers the same powerful geotagging tools that were built and are currently used by various US intelligence agencies.
The world is full of interesting and useful geographical location information inside of unstructured documents. Finding and aligning those locations with accurate geographical coordinates and other actionable information has proven to be a difficult problem. Until Now.
GeoLocator 2.0 is a precision-based tool that extracts populated places from unstructured text (i.e emails, instant messages, and other documents) and returns the extracted locations with their respective geo-coordinates.
The following are just a few of the new features and enhancements within GeoLocator 2.0:
- Better performance ( at least a 200% improvement over previous versions)
- Easier installation
- User-defined custom gazetteer
- Multiple interfaces, to include both a command line and GUI interface
- Export function that can target XML, KML or any custom format
- Various text markup options
- Web Service and Java API Interfaces
- Better Reporting
"We see the release of GeoLocator 2.0 as coming 'full circle' in our mission to support the most vital needs of the Intelligence enterprise. With GeoLocator 1.0, we set new levels of consistent accuracy and precision last year. This year, we've made it easier than ever to have high quality geotagging that is now customizable to the locations of interest of our customers. We've brought true 'plug and play' ease of use to adding your own locations or extending the system to fit the workflow of a customer's enterprise", said Estes. GeoLocator is just one of the many applications based upon Digital Reasoning's patented technology.
"The same technology we have developed that is being used by intelligence professionals in the Global War on Terrorism is now available and can be applied to any number of commercial problems", said Harry Schultz, Vice President of Product Development and Solutions at Digital Reasoning® Systems, Inc.
"When it comes to geotagging, other companies hold their customers hostage by forcing them to use a pre-defined and static gazetteer, or set of locations. We, however, wanted to give customers true freedom with our technology by allowing them to input their own locations as well as modify existing locations in the gazetteer", said Bill Day, Product Manager at Digital Reasoning® Systems, Inc. GeoLocator 2.0 is easy to use, works out-of-the-box, and is available at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.
