SAN DIEGO – June 28, 2016 - Echosec Systems is excited to announce the launch of Echosec Pro for ArcGIS Online, an application developed to enable rapid search, retrieval and import of real-time social media posts into ArcGIS. The information from Echosec shows real time social data and includes all publicly available posts, pictures, videos, audio, and check-in locations. Echosec Pro for ArcGIS is available immediately to Esri users via the ArcGIS Online Marketplace (marketplace.arcgis.com)
Echosec’s integration into ArcGIS Online allows for visualization and additional data sources alongside the social media data from Echosec. This means that Echosec and ArcGIS users are able to display their feature and tile layers within Echosec, query for social media related to their layers and data then export the social media search results directly to their ArcGIS Online account as a Feature Layer. This integration between Echosec and ArcGIS Online allows Esri users to inject another dimension to their existing workflow.
Echosec is the next generation of search that connects you with billions of pictures and posts made by millions of people, which never normally make it to common search engines. Echosec is the first search engine of its kind to realize that ‘where’ matters as much as ‘what’. The unique way of harvesting and displaying dynamic and user-generated content from sites like Twitter, Foursquare and Instagram, gives Echosec a completely unfiltered and real-time view of the world. Echosec has become an indispensable resource for public safety, government, and brand managers looking for information on global events. Defence and security applications for Echosec technology are extensive.
Echosec is encouraging ArcGIS users to try the new integration and are running the #FoundonEchosec contest through June 30. Share the best photos that you found using Echosec OR share screenshots of the best ArcGIS Online map that you created with Echosec as a data layer. See details at https://www.echosec.net/
