Federal Consultant Gary Katz to Speak on XML Approaches to GOSINT Metadata Formats

SAN CARLOS, Calif. — October 26, 2010 — MarkLogic Corporation, the company revolutionizing the way organizations leverage unstructured information, today announced that Federal Consultant Gary Katz will present at the GEOINT Symposium in New Orleans, L.A. The session, “XML Approaches to Facilitating Interoperability, Fusion, and Analysis of GOSINT Metadata Formats,” will include a demonstration of content from multiple sources being fused and analyzed by a Geospatial Open Source Intelligence (GOSINT) application. Katz will present on Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. CT in the Exhibit Hall.

The session will focus on the extraction and analysis of GOSINT from online websites that produce and expose rich content such as text, image, map and video, as well as their associated metadata. The live demonstration will detail recent NGA TOPS CRADA activity, where content from a variety of web search engines, geospatial, and crowdsourced internet sites were harvested, enriched, fused, and analyzed into a GOSINT application.

“Content is frequently enriched with supplemental metadata from automated and human sources, requiring systems capable of supporting a diverse array of metadata standards,” said Gary Katz, federal consultant, MarkLogic. “SOA-compliant XML technologies, such as MarkLogic, can make fusing and analyzing geospatial and non-geospatial data much easier. By implementing a database for unstructured information, organizations can generate significantly more value out of the content they have and the new content that is being added.”

Gary Katz is a Federal Consultant at MarkLogic Corporation with expertise in text mining, analytics and semantic technologies. Throughout his career he has served as a trusted resource to government agencies regarding metadata exploitation and data fusion. For the past year, Gary has worked closely with NGA’s Source Directorate on the TOPS CRADA addressing how to meet OSINT analysis needs. Gary holds a B.S. in computer science from the Pennsylvania State University.
