ArcGIS LocateXT is entity extraction software for analysis of unstructured data, enabling you to quickly distill location information from massive amounts of data. Its sense-making capability automatically identifies location information inside large volumes of your unstructured data to bring geospatial information to the surface. Interrogate an array of messages, reports, briefings, and social media posts. Uncover data inside Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint); Adobe PDF documents; and XML, HTML, and text files. Publish extractions on a map to share across the enterprise, including geodatabases, feature classes, and feature services. Implement custom automated workflows for deeper analysis and better decision-making.
