Road Map

Overview of Road Map and Data Priorities

  • Contiguous Data Processes:

    Every Tuesday, new patents are issued, so we have developed a process to create a contiguous, updating patent data repository.

  • Longitudinal Patent Tables:

    Never before have certain longitudinal patent data (forward-citation counts and Patent Rank) been so readily available.

  • Normalization Priorities:

    We solicit your feedback on what normalization priorities need to be emphasized: locations, firms, inventors, examiners, patent agents, etc.

  • Auxiliary Patent Data:

    We outline some key auxiliary data available and solicit your feedback regarding these priorities.

  • Historic Patent Data:

    We are harvesting older patent images and have outlined a strategy to parse this data using OCR-technology known as Tesserac.

  • Application Patent Data:

    We are in the process of harvesting the publication of patent applications for both issued and pending patents.

  • Foreign Patent Data?:

    We are open to suggestions regarding the priority of foreign patent data although our emphasis will always be on patent innovations secured in the United States.
