PatSeer Releases New Updates

PatSeer has launched a new set of updates as a part of its June, 2015 release, introducing new content update, searching enhancements and display enhancements. The update includes new hybrid search engine enhancements, new search, filtering and analysis fields and a redesigned patent drawings board. Read on for a detailed report.

PatSeer Content Update

  • Extended Singapore Biblio Records – As the INPADOC collection had several gaps, PatSeer has extended the bibliographic data for Singapore Patents, Utility Models and Designs from 1984 to 2015.
  • Chinese Full Text Content in Original Chinese Simplified Language – Full-text Chinese translated English content was already present in PatSeer. The new update adds full-text data in Chinese simplified language for all Chinese records.
  • Russian Industrial Design Grants – PatSeer has added full-text and images for Russian Industrial Design grants covering the period between 1992 to 2015.
  • German full-text collection has been augmented with content from 1960 to 1987.

Search Enhancements

  • Hybrid Search Engine Enhancements – The update offers greater flexibility when deduplicating by INPADOC/Simple Family. Users will now have greater control over which family record is displayed and analyzed in the result set.
  • New Search, Filtering and Analysis fields – The PatSeer update has added new fields to enhance search, filtering and analysis. The new fields include Geographical Regions, Assignee Type, Technology Domain and Technology Sub-Domain.

Display Enhancements

  • Redesigned Patent Drawings Browser – The update adds a redesigned patent drawings viewer that aims to reduce the time it takes to flip through an entire set of patent drawings.

PatSeer Projects has also been updated with greater flexibility and new custom fields including Range Fields and Multi-valued list. Usage Tracking has also been vastly improved, with users now being able to see counts per feature and when and how many times a feature was used and under what parameters.
