Oculus Info Inc. announces the release of GeoTime v1.0 for the concurrent visualization of geo-temporal data


Oculus Info Inc. announces the release of GeoTime v1.0 for the concurrent visualization of spatial and temporal data. With GeoTime, users are empowered to perform effective and efficient analysis of complex data over space and time within a single, highly interactive 3D view. This is a unique, patent-pending capability that allows analysts to detect and understand data patterns much more quickly than with traditional analysis tools.

In applications such as supply chain management, fraud networks, asset control, controlled substances tracking and criminal investigation, GeoTime eliminates the need for multiple separate tools and allows the user to better determine patterns of behavior and relationships between seemingly unconnected events and entities. “Analyzing observations over time and geography is a common task but typically requires multiple, separate tools.” says Bill Wright, Sr. Partner at Oculus. “With GeoTime, the dots get connected in the same picture.”

Key product features include:

  • Rich Object Model enables the separation, representation and analysis of many types of data
  • Fused Time/Map Workspace presents data points in a coordinated representation along timelines project onto maps
  • Tooltips and Drilldowns to see the underlying data values and launch other related documents
  • Link Analysis to isolate segments of networks
  • 3D Projection to view maps from any angle and depict terrain elevation data
  • Animation to playback sequences and see how events unfold
  • Target Trails to track the movement of people, organizations and objects over time and space
  • Minicharts to display summary metrics
  • ESRI ArcMap Connector to source data from ESRI formats
