Geosemble Product Release Showcases PlaceGenius Technology for Location Intelligence

Geosemble’s newest software release showcases "PlaceGenius"as the underlying technology for delivering knowledge about places from sources all over the world

October 17th  2011 El Segundo, CA:  Geosemble Technologies unveiled today the newest release of its GeoXray™ software suite, featuring the underlying PlaceGenius™ technology for delivering knowledge about places from all over the world.  Users can now benefit from a powerful set of tools and features designed to deliver deep location knowledge from vast sources while reducing personnel cost and shrinking the cycle time to reach informed decisions.
“We are extremely pleased to be delivering this new capability to our customers”, said Andre Doumitt, Geosemble CEO.  “It’s our goal to make our users smarter about places much earlier in the decision process, so they can capitalize on opportunities and avoid threats in their geographic areas of interest”, he said.

As an underlying technology component in the company’s GeoXray™ software suite, PlaceGenius plays 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 which GeoXray then displays in its own user-friendly interface, or via an API for consumption in other programs. 

Ultimately, the benefit for users is that GeoXray delivers access to vast amounts of content filtered down to a manageable volume through a simple user interface where users can see and understand information about places. 

PlaceGenius and GeoXray work together to strengthen Geosemble’s “triple filter” capability of filtering by location, then topics of interest, and finally time.  With today’s release of GeoXray version 2.7  the company has added the ability to tap 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; the ability to set up custom alerts filtered for a user’s topics of interest in a given location and delivered to a desktop or mobile device;  and the a “content view” mode that is map-optional and delivers content about a user’s pre-selected area in a “what’s happening here today” mode; as well as a host of other features.
