EpiSPIDER is a public health healthcare application that integrates information from different distributed electronic resources and performs semantic processing of text visually represent information using graphic display, GIS and mapping technologies.

This experimental Exhibit (map and timeline) is generated from news reports from both expert-curated and general news sources. Content is screened by uClassify, an Naive Bayes classification web service and then passed on to the OpenCalais and AlchemyAPI text mining web services for named entity annotation. EpiSPIDER is a tool that demonstrates connectivity between "consumers", "producers" and "transformers" of data within an emerging information and knowledge ecosystem. (source: official website)
