Qbase, an information technology company with an office in Springfield, announced Tuesday an alliance with Pitney Bowes Software that enhances and expands the geotagging and geosearch capabilities of the Qbase MetaCarta product line.

The August release of the MetaCarta Geographic Search and Referencing Platform version 4.7.0 uses the Pitney Bowes Software Spectrum technology platform and street address-level data sets, which includes both domestic U.S. and international locations.

The alliance with Pitney Bowes allows Qbase to expand MetaCarta’s street address extraction and geo-referencing to include additional countries, and provide accuracy and precision, company officials said.

“Our clients realize that the real value in ‘big data’ solutions lies in the ability to extract knowledge from their massive amounts of unstructured data,” said Scott Lightner, Qbase’s chief technology officer. “The Pitney Bowes Software Spectrum Technology Platform allows us to extend our value with roof-top accuracy to a larger part of the globe,” he said.

Founded in 2005, Qbase is based in Ohio and Washington D.C. Investors took over the company in 2010.
