Our team just got back from the GEOINT 2017 Symposium where we partnered with the Oracle National Security Group to visualize all the world’s news in near-real time. The demonstration shows how one could conduct cyber threat analysis and geospatial intelligence on a massive, diverse data set, in this case, the GDELT Global Knowledge Graph.  

I sat down with Kevin Madden, our Chief Software Engineer, and Deborah Baron, our Marketing Vice President, to uncover why Tom Sawyer Software is the best-kept secret in geospatial intelligence. We also discussed what was special about partnering with Oracle at the annual Symposium. Read More “The Best Kept Secret in Geospatial Intelligence”

Neo4j Bolt Support and Geospatial Maps in Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 Aid Intelligence, Security, and Speed

We’re thrilled to announce that Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 for Java and .NET were made available last week. Version 7.6 introduces new Tom Sawyer Maps, support for the OpenLayers map API and the Neo4j Bolt protocol, and performance enhancements.

Tom Sawyer Maps

The intelligence community, network security managers, systems engineers, and architects share a common need—to see entities (people, places, things, and events) on geospatial maps. In addition they need to see logical drawings and schematics of the entities and relationships between them over time. Creating visualizations of all of this connected data on an ordinary geographic map is hard to do and the maps can get messy and extremely difficult to read.  Read More “Neo4j Bolt Support and Geospatial Maps in Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 7.6 Aid Intelligence, Security, and Speed”
