Search and Explore public information and live social media updates with the newly updated Echosec
PRLog (Press Release) – Feb. 26, 2014 – SEATTLE — EchoSec is the next generation of the Search that connects you with trillions of pictures and posts made by billions of people, which never normally make it to common search engines. EchoSec is the first Search Engine of its kind to realize that ‘where’ matters as much as ‘what’, and brings it all together to clearly show the insufficiencies of current data monitoring techniques to control ‘secret’ and ‘classified’
Recently, Echosec announced an update that enables users to narrow and refine their spatial search with much greater precision. Using advanced spatial restrictions to the search criteria, users are now able to define the extent of a search on the map by drawing a bounding rectangle, defining a circular region or drawing a bounding rectangle. By selecting the appropriate search tool the user can narrow the results to a much finer, more accurate region providing results that are much more precise and useful.
EchoSec’s unique way of harvesting and displaying dynamic and user-generated content from sites like Twitter, Foursquare and Instagram, gives EchoSec a completely unfiltered and real-time view of the world. And, as you would expect, the results from EchoSec are spectacular. It excels in the urban environment, but it is equally extraordinary in places where you would not expect to find shared data. Areas like military bases, government facilities, private facilities, disaster zones like Tacloban in the Philippines, and even in ‘impenetrable’
“We currently only have 6 out of a potential 480 data sources available on our site, and have already been surprised by the results” states Karl Swannie, CEO of EchoSec. “This engine is not only good for finding the best local restaurant, but will also help in catastrophes where, for instance, we can virtually recreate a space with immediate and historic data, which is critical for first responders.”
