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.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
