Specific Professional Use



Resource Industries:

       

Vector clustering search
KS can be used by geologists, prospectors and geophysicists to examine exploration reports, geophysical survey data bases, web based information repositories, archived paper surveys, reports, assays and analysis and GIS maps to acquire patterns of co-existing results and findings. PatternScape search technology facilitates search by clustering information into inter-relationships and providing insightful vector profiles of the distribution of findings.

Distribution vectors of compounds, elements and geophysical features can be reviewed through the ClusterView presentation of the search system. Co-existence can be used to profile inter-relationships, examine preponderance and map exploration and information repositories. KS refers to its pattern clustering technology as a first pass analytic research tool for the exploration professional. Narrowing drill target choices is a reasonable expectation when using PS as an analytic tool, for example. If you have accumulated vast data PS can facilitate digestion of the data by providing views that cluster information into decision making parcels.

Similarities, differences and co-existence are presented as variants in ClusterView, thereby helping the user examine complex search results and vector distributed inter-relationships.

Examples:
The user searches archived surveys that contain reference to multiple compounds and/or conditions and physical features (Mineralizes fluorite veins, Zn, Pb and Ag, for example). PatternScape responds with a ClusterView map of matching and closely matching variants from which the user can derive insight into surveys and reports otherwise impossible to examine individually. Secondly, the user is interested in the co-existence of “silicafied rocks” or “evidence of hydrothermal fluid flow” and is shown not only which reports and surveys contain reference but also the co-existence of other conditions and findings (presented with frequency distribution vectors).

Example use:
  • Mining and survey analysis
  • Resource industries exploration analysis
  • Information assets and assay analysis with cross comparisons
  • GIS information maps, shapefiles and documents

Crawling, indexing, and transforming cross platform information into searchable assets
For creating multiple searchable indexes the user is provided with an automated and flexible crawl manager, CrawlScape, which can operate across multiple folders, data resources, digital reference materials, libraries, multiple geophysical and information assets. Thus, accurate profiling (pattern mapping) of data sources and knowledge repositories across many disperse corporate, institutional and national databases is possible.

An Intranet deployment utility and visualization portal
ScapeShape is an Intranet file sharing utility with a visualization framework for deploying browser-based web and Intranet sites. It is a multi-zone portal for:
  • Searching documents and files within its network
  • Communication discussion groups
  • File sharing and control under the extensive Intranet deployment utility
  • Co-existence search pad for common terms
  • RSS (news) feeds
  • Public announcements and advertising
  • Top activity zones
  • Paperless office user interface
  • Speak to text (voice notes) user interface

With these systems, it is possible to deploy unique Intranet Search sites for every department or specialty in a firm. This is made possible with the integration of an automated crawler, pattern profiling search, and ScapeShape Intranet deployment utility.

Paper and voice conversion, and knowledge base inclusion
Conversion and collating features in SoftPaperScape and SpeakScape can be employed to transform physical assets (writings, decisions, reports, and consultations) into searchable documents. These resulting digital assets are useful for building or adding to knowledge and information repositories. Both systems transform scanned documents or voice recordings into searchable repositories. Large documents are broken into searchable parts while long recordings are split into snippets for efficient review.

A prospector for example, could scan a profile or survey which would be compared to other documents in the index for inter-related traits, profiles and matching elements. Dictations of observations can also be converted and archived for search using the wireless PDA recording solution.

All this is done automatically by SPKS and SPS.
