Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) December 8, 2009
MetaCarta has extended its lead in the industry with the release of v4.5 as the fastest and most accurate georeferencing platform. Version 4.5's Base GDM nearly doubles the number of place names recognized by its core Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine, with millions more able to be added in Custom Gazetteers. This upgrade also includes a significant performance boost to the GSRP platform.
GeoTagging enhancements include improvements in recognizing university and higher education institution names, superior NLP to disambiguate human names from place names, support for additional coordinate variations, and improved neighborhood and partial street address tagging.
- Custom Gazetteer - The Custom Gazetteer allows users to disable the tagging of a specific place creating more refined searches.
- Connectors - All connectors have improved performance for aborting jobs as well as enhanced document template support. RSS Connectors are generally available with enhanced control over URL canonicalization. Specific connectors such as the JDBC Connector, Livelink Connector, Web Connector and the Share Connector have enhanced support.
- OpenSearch - OpenSearch is standard for the querying and display of search results.
