“This new stand-alone software offering allows our customers to use Geotagger as the intelligence piece of their own solutions and opens up MetaCarta to the solution provider market,” said Don Zereski, CEO of MetaCarta.
Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
MetaCarta, Inc., the leading provider of geographic search solutions, today announced the release of its Geotagger software for use on the Red Hat platform. On the heels of achieving over 100 percent growth in Q4 2009, MetaCarta’s unbundling of its Geotagger software from the current appliance offering opens up new markets for the company with solution providers.
Combining this powerful software with an open source platform will allow customers to integrate MetaCarta’s Geotagger software within bigger solutions as the core intelligence piece, all while running it on their own hardware. MetaCarta’s customers will also now be able to run the Geotagger software in a virtual environment, providing a solution that helps reduce hardware at a time when many companies and agencies are faced with limited data center space.
Geotagger is one of the key components of MetaCarta Geographic Search and Referencing Platform (GSRP), integrating geographic information into third-party applications. Using Natural Language Processing, it is a production-level geographic entity resolving function that parses content, extracts geographic references, and resolves the geographic meaning intended by the author. Previously, the Geotagger software was available only in combination with the GSRP as an appliance. MetaCarta will continue to carry and support its GSRP solutions.
“Allowing customers to purchase our Geotagger software separately for use on the Red Hat platform is the first step in our plan to unbundle the software from the current application offering,” said Don Zereski, CEO of MetaCarta. “This new stand-alone software offering allows our customers to use Geotagger as the intelligence piece of their own solutions and opens up MetaCarta to the solution provider market.”
MetaCarta recently announced a breakout Q4, achieving record growth that is expected to continue in 2010.
