Your data never worked so hard.


Map information to geography and geo-enable your data

MetaCarta allows users to quickly discover and visualize actionable information around more than 300 million physical locations around the world. It allows users to quickly make sense of huge volumes of text. It provides meaningful, actionable insight in situations where it matters most.


Our customers in the law enforcement, health care, military, national security and energy arenas count on MetaCarta because it combines geographic search and geographic tagging capabilities with traditional text and keyword search. It’s fast and flexible and offers the ability to glean mission- critical information from disparate datasets and sources. It’s a proven, scalable technology that can be customized to meet any need.

The MetaCarta suite of tools includes:

  • GDMs: MetaCarta GDMs make up the core of the MetaCarta solution. A GDM is a knowledge base used to identify and disambiguate geographic references. MetaCarta provides several GDMs for language or industry-specific use:

    • Our base, customizable GDM
    • Language GDMs (Spanish, Russian, French and Arabic)
    • Street Addresses (U.S., Canada, Spain, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Russia, Mexico and China)
    • IHS Oil and Gas GDM

  • Query Parser: The MetaCarta Query Parser recognizes geographic references in search queriesand directs users to more relevant content faster. This capability allows analysts to save valuable time and to quickly refine their searches as new content is presented. While MetaCarta uses advanced algorithms to process massive amounts of data at high speeds, it also includes a knowledge base that allows it to, in effect, think like a person. This function is perhaps the best example of this capability in action.

  • GeoTagger: The MetaCarta GeoTagger finds and returns geographic references contained in a document – and a “document” can include anything from message traffic to web pages, blogs, file shares, databases or content management systems and beyond. From unstructured text, it identifies geographic locations – addresses, cities, locations, landmarks, etc. – and provides analysts with a catalog of the specific locations mentioned within a document and returns information about those locations to the user.

  • Location Finder: This function returns all possible location matches for specific geographic query. This offers users a simple way to refine initial an area of focus.

Qbase Data Discovery (QDD)

Pinpoint your data issues through rapid analysis

Qbase Data Discovery delivers an effective and efficient way to understand the structure of your data, rapidly identify anomalies, reduce risks through informed decision making, and formulate business rules for downstream processes.

More simply, it provides data management and detailed analysis of your data. We allow you to see your data and metadata in new ways to prepare it for standardizing and cleansing. From there, Qbase can work with you to perform a host of predictive modeling and scoring services to enrich your data and turn it into powerful, actionable intelligence.


Qbase Data Transformer (QDT)

Load, process and transform for smarter, faster data

Qbase Data Transformer (QDT), our powerful data mapping and conversion system, processes data from multiple, disparate sources, applies specific business rules and saves to a variety of formats targeted for a specific system.

We designed QDT to be easy to use, requiring no programming, enabling the integration of massive amounts of dissimilar data scattered across multiple legacy systems into a new data format. We fundamentally believe that making sense of data is a critical business function. And this function is enabled by first ensuring your data is as meaningful and powerful as it can be.


  Our state-of-the-art technologies and facilities, couple with our industry-leading technology team, help you successfully meet the demands of any size data processing or data management project.
