If you rely on Esri in your organization, you can now bring Factal’s breaking news data into ArcGIS maps and apps.

We unveiled our integration at the Esri User Conference in San Diego this week (above).

Factal brings a new level of speed and precision to the world’s most popular enterprise mapping platform, combining the velocity of social media with the accuracy of verification and down-to-the-meter geolocation. Factal’s trusted coverage cuts through the noise, filters out false positives and shows you exactly where a breaking news event is occurring in real time.

After all, mapping is not just for your monitor wall – it can now accelerate decision-making across your organization.

Factal’s Esri integration is a feature-level service in GeoEvent Server, infusing our real-time coverage and functionality into both maps and apps.
