MetaCarta Geographic Text Search (GTS) is a geographic search solution that enables users to locate high-relevance documents by combining text search with geographic and temporal factors. Geographic Data Modules (GDM) are knowledge bases utilized to identify and disambiguate geographic references, assign latitude/longitude coordinates, and rank. Enhancements in GTS include automated search and notification, region search, 2-D analysis and visualization, and ESRI features include: automated search and notification, where geographic text queries can be saved and executed automatically at scheduled times providing a continual stream of geographic intelligence about a particular location. Notification of new intelligence resulting from the queries can be proactively sent to a user or set of users using email, RSS, instant messaging or active browser notification giving users the information they need, when, and where they need it; region search, which provides the ability to filter results based on a specific geo-political region, such as country, state, province, or city; 2-D Analysis and Visualization, which allows users to see the distribution of an entire geographic text search results set. Users can determine trends and see hotspots, which creates a more complete picture and thus facilitates better decisions; and ESRI Enhancements such as support for Active Directory, improved Windows docking, collection selection, and export to an ESRI Shapefile. GTS 3.5 is available immediately.
