IHS Markit Converts from MetaCarta to Finch for Text®

Reston, VA – Finch Computing, makers of innovative entity intelligence software Finch for Text®, today announced that global information and analytics firm and long-time customer IHS Markit has converted from the former MetaCarta product, previously offered as a geographic entity intelligence tool, to Finch for Text®.

“Our MetaCarta product was the gold standard in geographic entity intelligence for more than a decade,” Finch Computing Chief Technology Officer Scott Lightner said. “The decision of IHS Markit and other customers in the intelligence community in particular to convert to Finch for Text® shows the superiority of its geographic entity intelligence capabilities as well as the value of the additional NLP capabilities and support for other entity types in the product.”

Finch for Text® includes a knowledgebase of more than 30,000 geographic entities, which includes specific locations on a map, natural landmarks, national parks, significant buildings, specific street addresses and more. The tool uses proprietary algorithms, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to extract, enrich and disambiguate entities from huge volumes of streaming or static text at real-time and with unparalleled accuracy.
