Two companies integrate technology to deliver deeper understanding of geographic regions through database analysis and social media visualization
Manhattan Beach, CA. 21 Feb 2012 – Geosemble Technologies®, Inc., and BAE Systems have expanded their collaboration to integrate Geosemble’s GeoXray™ data-to-knowledge application and BAE Systems’ GXP Xplorer data discovery and retrieval software. Together, the system captures a wide range of organizational and Internet-based knowledge about a given geographic area while giving users control over tuning and filtering content of interest.
“GXP Xplorer is integrated, or ‘mashed-up’ with the GeoXray server that monitors news websites, blogs, Twitter tweets, and Facebook posts, and geotags the information so it can be discovered in a single search by GXP Xplorer users,” said Janis McArthur, product manager for GXP Xplorer. The combined capability leverages GXP Xplorer’s strength in cataloging and federating multiple data stores — images, maps, terrain, videos, and documents — with GeoXray’s functionality for automatic mining and integration of geographically relevant news and social media.
As part of the collaboration, BAE Systems and Geosemble jointly demonstrated the integrated product on desktop and handheld devices at the October GEOINT 2011 Symposium in San Antonio.
By working together, Geosemble and BAE Systems offer users the capability to search online information simultaneously with documents and files contained in an organization’s data stores for unique insight and accelerated mission effectiveness with fewer human resources required.
