The Geoparser as one of Memex’s sub projects is an open source software that can process information from any type of file (Apache Tika), identify location entities from text (Named Entity Recognition), convert location name to geographic coordinates (Geo Gazetteer) and visualize locations on a map (OpenLayer). After the information is parsed and points are plotted on the map, users are able to filter their results by domain, by searching a key word or geo-boundaries.
