MetaCarta unveils GDMs to support Arabic and Spanish

Relands, USA, 19 June 2007: MetaCarta, Inc. has announced two new geographic data modules (GDMs) that identify, disambiguate, and resolve Arabic and Spanish geographic references found in documents. The new GDMs enable MetaCarta GeoTagger to automatically identify the language and character set of each document, geo-reference and country code tags to each place name in an XML file.

GDMs contain natural language processing (NLP) logic to recognize the jargons and data types that represent geographic entities, disambiguate names and establish geo-confidence.
