EU External Affairs publishes crisis data mining tools as open source
The crisis room at the European Union's Directorate-General for External Relations has published several open source data mining tools, meant to provide real-time support for early warning and crisis response.
The main tool, Tarîqa, version 3.0, is an open source search platform that uses and combines information from search engines, information databases and geographic information sources including satellite images. "Tarîqa's advanced information retrieval tools makes it possible to gain useful knowledge from the masses of information that are available", the developers write in their introduction.
