SPADAC Launches Signature Analyst 3.1

Leading application now extends ArcGIS capabilities to provide analysts with advanced spatial statistics and modeling through fast, easy-to-use interface

MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 19 -- SPADAC, a leading provider of spatially enhanced technology solutions, today announced the release of Signature Analyst 3.1, the latest version of its patented and commercially-available geospatial predictive analysis tool featuring an ArcGIS extension that provides users with advanced spatial statistics and modeling to enable suitability analysis, risk assessment and resource allocation.

"We're very excited to offer a version of Signature Analyst that supports the ArcGIS community," said Mark Dumas, founder and CEO of SPADAC. "We have had great success with this proven technology for several years supporting customers in the military and intelligence communities."

Signature Analyst 3.1 provides geospatial analysts an unbiased statistical approach to analyze events within an area of interest (AOI), discover relationships between events and factors, and predict where similar events might occur. Input data layers include physical, socio-cultural, economic, demographic and GEOINT factors from a variety of sources including ArcSDE. Finished output products generated, called geospatial assessments, often are visualized as a hot-spot map. The software enables analysts the ability to analyze thousands of data layers and discover relationships, patterns and preferences.

ArcGIS provides a variety of capabilities in GIS, cartography and visualization to enable high-quality map production.

"With the new extension, analysts can simply drag-and-drop data layers from ArcMap or ArcCatalog to create factors, events and AOIs," said Peter Borissow, SPADAC product manager. "This makes it incredibly easy to create assessments."

To order Signature Analyst 3.1 or obtain more information about the product, call Ken Melero at 703-740-4005.
