Open source intelligence

Open data or open-source data exploration is conducted based on data and information available to the general public. At first glance, it may seem that this is an analysis of the first pages of search results, but it is not. In addition to collecting data from the "surface web" of what can be found through search engines, data collection goes much deeper. Open information is also the study of the "deep web," pages on websites or databases that are open to the whole public but which cannot be reached from the first search query.

Also, thanks to digitalization, many technical means (webcams, printers, IP addresses, web ports, and other equipment) are connected to the network without additional passwords, becoming tools for searching for the necessary data. Available information includes resources such as the content published or distributed to a public audience (news, open social networks, and other formats of text/ graphic, audio, and video content), available for public access by request (information available by free subscription),

known by paid subscription or purchase (scientific or business magazines, where specific details of a professional nature are located), available for viewing/listening to a casual viewer, content that is given access to at a public event, accessible to visitors of a public place or event. Scalar specialists conduct an in-depth analysis of information freely available for your purposes and will also be able to check your data for availability for external search.

Mass media

One of the most widely used methods of information intelligence is the collection and analysis of traditional media, including magazines and newspapers, publications such as conference materials, corporate documents, and open networks. Most of the resources of this group are available in search engines.

Social media intelligence

A branch of information intelligence gathered from social networking websites. So the data available from social networking sites can be private (inaccessible from the outside) and public. And the content posted by the user can be divided into two categories - source text content and metadata related to the source content, including information about geolocation, date, and content creation time.

Gray literature

Collection and analysis of a massive number of publications related to the "gray literature" published by organizations openly for the public and their use in the future, including patents, working papers, technical reports, recommendations, technical standards, technical notes, data, and statistics.

Type sometging

GEOINT data is required to accurately model real-world locations in game, virtual, and augmented reality environments.

Blogs & forums

Studying blogs and forums as open online communities is another way to collect information for analysis. Scalar specialists use multilingual search tools for forums and communities, allowing them to find information from worldwide.
