Patent Mapping, Landscape

Climb a mountain high enough and you’ll get a comprehensive view of the landscape. That’s the idea behind patent mapping. Admittedly, the concept is a simple one – but the process behind it is most often complex and demanding.

Of course, a patent map is only as good as the data behind it, and our unparalleled search results make the difference. Our in-depth knowledge of your industry and your key technology areas allows us to find better, more relevant information than other less-experienced searchers. Plus, our deep industry experience enables us to interpret and analyze the data in meaningful ways. In the end, you’ll have clearer, more relevant information that helps you understand your competitive landscape and plan for the future with confidence.

Benefits of Patent Mapping/Landscape

  • Offers overall perspective of current patents and/or technologies in an existing area
  • Detailed or high-level knowledge of the scope of invention within a target market
  • Supports high level executive presentations/summaries

Resources, Coverage and Foreign Language Options

TPR will utilize the resources and approach most effective for the given technology and budget which can include:

  • Online databases for patent and non-patent literature
  • On-site searching at patent offices
  • Classification-based searching
  • Special coding/indexing when applicable (i.e. chemical structures, sequences, polymers, etc.)

TPR can search domestic and/or worldwide resources to any extent depending on your patent landscape objective.

TPR’s on the ground coverage in key countries around the world means that your search can optionally be conducted in the local languages for the most accurate search results.
