Technological advances help save time and increase productivity for geospatially-focused organizations
GXP Xplorer offers easy access to data.
Any intel analyst will tell you that finding the right data to support their analysis efforts is far more difficult than it should be. Repeatedly, we hear from analysts who are challenged to find the data they need, when they need it. However, information that is dispersed across different systems, repositories, local digital “shoeboxes,” and social media networks can now be discovered quickly and easily with GXP Xplorer, our new geospatial data management tool.
Here’s how it works… GXP Xplorer finds and catalogs geospatial data files (such as images, maps, charts, terrain, video, LiDAR, shapefiles, text documents, PowerPoint presentations, and GeoPDFs) where they are stored without moving or duplicating them, thereby eliminating unnecessary data duplication and added IT storage costs.

“A key goal of the vision is to provide an analytic environment where analysts spend their time doing analysis and not waste their time looking for data, or building spreadsheets, or signing onto multiple systems.” *
– Letitia A. Long, Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
Rather than manually searching through various databases one at a time using different discovery clients, GXP Xplorer saves the user significant time by automatically querying multiple data stores simultaneously with a single “federated” search. To further reduce time consuming steps, users set up subscriptions to bypass the need to manually rerun common queries. The software automatically runs the specified query when new data arrives that meets the search criteria and sends alerts to the user via RSS feeds.
