Raytheon awards research grant to NEVAC
Alan MacEachren, Director of the North-East Visualization and Analytics Center
(NEVAC), and Information Sciences and Technology colleague Lee Giles,
who directs the CiteSeer
search engine project, were awarded a contract that directly leverages past NEVAC
research in information visualization, web mapping, and geocontextualization of
text and combines these advances with Giles' innovative work on algorithms to
segment, recognize, and disambiguate text in documents.
The goal of the GeoDiscoverer project is to combine and integrate social network discovery techniques with geographic information retrieval, indexing and visualization techniques to produce an application that allows analysts to discovery significant and novel social connections and their geographic patterns in web documents or other text sources. This research is featured in current issue of Raytheon's Technology Today.
