See how Sintelix collects OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) data from the web and presents it for quick and easy analysis. Collect data from hundreds of websites within minutes including wiki pages, social media sites, dark web sites and more. In this example we collect and analyze data on Syria with Sintelix.
What is OSINT?
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) refers to the collection and analysis of publicly available (open) sources. OSINT is used by law enforcement and intelligence professionals to obtain relevant information. OSINT could come from a broad range of sources including:
- Print media (newspapers and magazines)
- Internet (social media, blogs, web sites, dark web, wiki pages, discussion groups, online forums, chat rooms etc.
Harvester is a highly customizable, out of the box solution that allows you to extract data from multiple web sources such news, wikis, forums, blogs and social media.
You can harvest a single page at a time or many in a batch. The system extracts text and also hyperlinks. You can harvest recursively.
Harvester only identifies relevant data, ignoring navigation, side bars, footers, advertising and any other unwanted text. Only the relevant text is passed on for Sintelix to organize, create associations and build a network for further analysis.
Collating and analyzing this data manually can be extremely time consuming. Harvester automates the process of collecting and analyzing OSINT data, delivering significant time and cost savings while creating new possibilities.
We call this automated process harvesting, also known as web scraping, data scraping, data mining or text mining. The video above demonstrates the power of Harvester.
Harvester is just one part of the full Sintelix solution. See the links below to learn more about the Sintelix text intelligence solution:
