With this patch, the GXP Xplorer Server can process ordered data, such as creating reduced resolution data sets, reformatting image files, and supporting FTP data transfers.
The following list includes new items in the 184.108.40.20611116 EXPORT patch:
- Faster cataloging, with event-driven updates
- Improved query performance
- Faster search results
- Better map zooming behavior
- Added security features
- Reworked Advanced search fields
- Updated Details table
- Display of the File Path and File Size in the Details Table
- Additional bug fixes
In addition, the patch offers the capability to integrate or “mash up” with GeoXray or MarkLogic servers, where available. GeoXray, a data-to-knowledge application from Geosemble Technologies, Inc., monitors news websites, Twitter tweets, and Facebook posts. It geotags the information drawn from social media so it can be detected on a map.
MarkLogic, a next-generation database application from MarkLogic Corporation, is optimized for unstructured information. It easily loads information from social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and blogs that users analyze to discover the hidden relationships between data sets — regardless of format (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured).
Mash ups with these applications make it possible for a user to search and analyze GXP Xplorer data and social media simultaneously in a federated GXP Xplorer search.
Analysts and other users can discover, preview, and order geotagged and non-geotagged data. All standard products such as CADRG charts and maps, VMAPs, CIB*, DPPDB*, DTED, SRTM, LiDAR (Buckeye), and other data types can be cataloged. Users can easily filter data by time, area, data type and text.
*SOCET SET Digital Point Positioning Data Base (DPPDB) format production module [which uses MIL-PRF-89034, March 1999 format specifications] and SOCET SET Controlled Image Base® (CIB) format production module [which uses MIL-PRF-89041, May 15, 1999, format specifications].
Many different data sources can be searched at once with a “federated search” capability. Data can be discovered and processed before downloading. It can be reformatted or processed using plug-in services. GXP Xplorer is interoperable, which allows BAE Systems and other organizations to contribute plug-in processing services. For example, GXP Xplorer has demonstrated plug-ins of multispectral anomaly and target detection from Exelis Visual Information Solutions, and NGA’s radar processing applications compliant with its Sensor Independent Complex Data (SICD) specification and Plug-In Mini API (PIMA) interface.
Mash ups of GXP Xplorer with other data sources are quick and easy. GXP Xplorer is mashed-up to execute MarkLogic searches to provide relevant information from social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and blogs for human intelligence gathering.
GXP Xplorer is mashed-up for federated searches of GeoXray data from Geosemble Technologies, to provide geotagged social media links from many news feeds and social networking websites to give users the latest information for analysis in their area of interest.
