Knowvation GS™

Overview

Organizations now require their analysts to track a vast quantity of geospatial sensor information and other all-source data obtained from a diverse set of sources including satellite, airborne/drone and open source.  With motion and still imagery systems, document databases and various other resources, analysts have a difficult time aggregating all information on a particular geographical target during a particular time frame and they are unable to quickly compare current and historical data. 

 

PTFS has overcome this problem with the advent of the Knowvation GS™, a geospatial content management system (GeoCMS) that provides discovery, exploitation and dissemination advantages, enhancing the efficiency of geospatial analysts. PTFS’ core software, Knowvation™, is a browser-based, full-text search and retrieval system for digital libraries and repositories which allows organizations to manage digital collections within one easy to use system. Knowvation GS™ provides users with a low cost/low risk solution to support the analyst’s mission to quickly find all information for a particular geographical target across various data formats during a particular time.

 

Base Map Interface

Knowvation GS™ is an integrated GeoCMS with a selection of alternative base maps to provide a graphical method for specifying a location of interest. Using the map interface, the system will display the geographic location for any type of digital object while the user performs searching operations. For example, while retrieving construction drawings of an airport, the user can simultaneously display the satellite view of that airport. This ability to use the same search criteria across a combination of video clips, drone captured images, full text documents and virtually any source of intelligence data incorporated with simple and easy to use displays, allows efficient research and analysis in a timely manner.

One System for Managing Geospatial Content

PTFS has overcome this problem with the advent of the Knowvation GS™. PTFS’ core software, Knowvation™, is a browser-based, full-text search and retrieval system for digital libraries and repositories which allows organizations to manage digital archive collections within one easy to use system. Knowvation GS™ provides users with a low cost/low risk solution to support the analyst’s mission to quickly find all information for a particular geographical target across various data formats during a particular time.

Google Satellite Interface

Knowvation GS™ is integrated with a Google Satellite interface to provide a graphical method for specifying a location of interest. Using the Google Satellite interface, the system will display the geographic location for any type of digital object while the user performs searching operations. For example, while retrieving construction drawings of an airport, the user can simultaneously display the satellite view of that airport. This ability to use the same search criteria across a combination of video clips, still images, full text documents and virtually any source of intelligence data incorporated with simple and easy to use displays, allows efficient research and analysis in a timely manner.
