Queries allow you to find the necessary ones in the content.

GEODI queries may result as a list (CONTENT page), as a map(MAP page) or as a calendar (CALENDAR page). Whichever is best for you. Other modules may add new views to give more insight into your data—for example, NETWORK Graph Page by GEODI Discovery, or Media Panel by MediaMon.


      Word Search


      Georgia Aquarium

      “Georgia Aquarium”

      Finds contents with words. Words may not be next to each other and case insensitive. If you want to search an exact phrase, put “ around the words.

      Starts with/Ends with


      “Georgia Aquarium*”


      “*” means any. So Georg* finds Georgia, George… *City finds smartcity, capacity or velocity.

      By Content Name&Type



      doc:geodinote (geodi note type)

      doc:geodinote -possible (notes contains the word “possible”)

      Note = doc:*.geodinote

      Search rules also apply to content names. You should just add “doc:” at the beginning of the rule.

      The keyword note is a shortcut for doc:*.geodinote.

      Reverse the Rule



      -“Georgia Aquarium”


      “-” means the reverse the rule. doc:*:PDF finds all PDF filers -doc.*.PDF finds all non PDF files.

      Search by Dates

      23 April 1920 , October 1-30, 1923 ,

      May-December 1923 , 04/23/1923

      GEODI recognizes dates written in a natural way, and allows you to search linearly.

      GEODI automatically recognizes all dates and date ranges in content. If you install the language pack, it also does this for Russian, Arabic, Georgian, Hebrew and other languages.

      The calendar view is build by recognized dates and is an important insight tool.

      Relative Date Rules

      yesterday , today

      last week , last month , next year

      Last decade , next month next decade

      The dates of some content types like e-mails or social media messages, are reliable. So GEODI allows you to query by relative date words.

      Find Wrong Spelling




      When you do know the exact spelling or need to find if any wrong spell then you should use “~” (Tilda) operatör. Tilda means any word similar to.

      You may use the rule with other rules.

      Berlon~ finds Berlin, Terlon..

      Geordia~ finds Georgia…

      Rules between Rules

      iOS OR Android

      (iOS OR iPhone) AND Android

      Georgia AND doc:*.PDF

      Georgia doc:*.PDF

      You may use AND/OR or brackets in search expressions. The blank between rules means AND. So the last 2 is identical.

      Word Proximity Rule



      Accident() Driver()

      *Accident() , Accident*() Accident~()

      Accident() Insurance

      15 °C()

      December 2021()

      “()” at the end of the rule affects maps, keywords and graph pages. This operator is a great insight tool.

      In the MAP page Accident() means show places near to word Accident.

      You may specify word distance. You may use the rule with other rules.

      “Accident() Insurance” means find documents with Accident and Insurance but they should be close to each other.

      when you use the operator in keyword page, only related words remain. Places related with accidents or people related with accidents may be found this way.

      Versioning and Search

      ver:last (last version)

      ver:0 (old versions)

      ver:<version> (a specific version)

      ver:[prev | hasprev] (one older version)

      GEODI versions all content by default. Default query finds all versions. But you may limit them by using ver: keyword.

      GEODI just tracks the changes but does not save the old versions. If you want to access old version also you may activate “backup” per source.

      Find Similars


      similar:”Georgia Aquarium” (finds similar document containig the words)

      GEODI finds similar documents. Copies and similar are also shown in viewers.

      You may use following criteria for similarity search

      • maxcount:<n> – limit similar count by n.
      • minsimilarity:0.7 – set similarity. Default is 0.7.
      • excludeDuplicates:true exclude copies default =false means copies are listed under similar.

      Find Copies

      duplicate (content with copies)

      -duplicate (content w/o any copy. i.e unique ones)

      duplicate:(doc:a.pdf) (finds copies of a.pdf)

      duplicate:”Georgia Aquarium” (finds copy document containg the words)

      Its said that, typicaly %40 of documents in organizations are duplicate. This copyis not only waste places but makes searches harder. GEODI finds and helps you eliminate them.

      Copy and similar content listed also in viewers.

      Search by Source&Parent


      parent:Georgia* (files whose parent(ZIP or Folder..) has starts with Georgia)

      parent:*.ZIP (files in ZIP files)

      source:Archive parent:*.ZIP georgia (get files from Archive source, in ZIPs and containing word Georgia)

      source:”Archive,HR” (2 sources)

      source:”Archive\HR” (HR in Archive, Tree format)


      You may limit the search results by content sources you have used in the project settings. You may also set rules for parent documents.

      You may specify more than one source. If you set source names in tree format then you should refer the same way.

      parent: Search by parent content. ZIPs or folders may have other content under. if you take a note than it becomes a child of the content.

      child: search by child content. e.g. search files whose note contains “eligible”.

      Search by Image


      Drag and drop an image in to the search box and find similar ones. You may use a machine part, or a wall paper sample.

      (info) This feature must be activated in the project.



      There is no special keyword to search in scanned documents. The OCR makes them searchable and other rules apply. OCR may need an extra license.

      Find by Layer


      layer:”Name Recognizerı”

      layer:”Date Hashtag”

      You may limit the results by layer. Find content containing hastag, or date, a city, a street, or a name. This semantic queries are also used in Classification.

      Find Geo Only


      geom means find content containing a location. This location may have come from a lot of sources.

      Find by Language



      If language recognizer included in the project you may filter by language.

      Find by Spatial Relations


      GEODI is also a GIS and supports all spatial relations with an important difference. GEODI works structured and unstructured data unlike traditional GIS solkutions.

      For details GEODI Spatial Query Rules

      Search Structured Data


      GEODI also searches in databases or structured excel files. You can limit search by field name. If more than one table in multiple databases contain the same field the search includes all. So GEODI effectivelly merges all structured data along with unstructured ones.

      GEODI collects field names by itself. İndexing and other phases are all auto but you may define how a tablo will be indexed by means of views an other ways.




      GEODI tries to bring the most relevant content first. But you may define different orders. Sort keywords behaves different in CONTENT and KEYWORDS pages. Following criteria are valid for keywords only.


      Query by content owner


      The content summary contains the owner, who added the content by drag-and-drop. The owner: query results the content added by specified user.

      Practical Examples

      We suggest you to try the following samples with your content. You will see how easy and effective to find content in GEODI.

      If you have a rought estimation about time interval then you may specify it in the search phrase. If you are sure that it was a PDF that no problem.

      Jan-March 2017 doc:*.PDF Georgia

      We are sure that it came through e-mail

      content:e-Mail Georgia

      We know that it was in a ZIP file. The document name was something “Geological..” and contains the the word wall.

      parent:*.ZIP doc:Geological* Wall

      Search for Georgia but not auarium.

      Georgia -Aqua*

      When you want to search a word and sinonims at the same time you may simply define a GEODI dictionary. The following queries may be identical using a single line dictionary:

      Artifical Intelligence


      Expert System

      Using just words in long documents may be misleading. Lets assume , a 10 page document first word in the first page, second word is in the last page. To prevent this situation you may use proximity rule that is ().

      Education() “High School”

      find High School within 10 words of education. Try removing () and see the result.

      Education “High School”


      Words can be found close to currency expressions that fit the range.

      Save and Watch Queries

      The current query may be saved using the search box menu. Saving enables to reuse of frequent queries and publish them with other users.

      If you watch a query every time new content or a change happens GEODI will inform you through e-mail. This feature saves a lot of time. You may watch for certain words but semantic features may be much more useful. Watching a query like “layer:SSN” whenever a document with social security comes you will be informed.
