"To say that this app is comprehensive is an understatement"

politicoTracker ships with a complete database of 8000

US Federal, State, and local elected officials and appointees.

Using powerful object-based meta-data technology, politicoTracker news results are not only highly targeted, they can be easily cross-searched against a variety of other news "objects".

This ability to construct accurate, instantaneous groupings of news articles can bring to light "hidden" relationships you may not have been aware of - it is the essence of news discovery.

Possible groupings include (with examples):

World Regions

US States

Current Events (your State Governor and the economic stimulus)

Industries (your senator and the automotive industry)

Business Events (your congressman and plant and factory closures)

Publications (what is the Wall Street Journal saying about your politico?)

Government Agencies (President Obama and the Department of Treasury)

Each member of congress, governor, state representative, and other elected official can be searched in any of these ways. This is a time saving tool for anyone who is into politics or is part of the political arena.

Traditional search engines force you to know what you're looking for before you start your search. In contrast, politicoTracker's news categorizations have already mapped out the deep unseen relationships, so you can quickly find what you need to know, before you knew to look for it. This is a significant advancement in search technology, now publicly available to you in the palm of your hand.

politicoTracker is powered by Llesiant technology, which is currently in use at federal agencies, the department of defense, congressional offices, and major US corporations and law firms - helping their staff to keep track of issues that matter to them. Now that power is available to you, to help you keep track of our elected officials.
