System Features

Patent iNSIGHT Pro provides following features



VizMAP is unique from existing solutions in that it combines patent network analysis with semantic (contextual) spatial-mapping thereby allowing users to not just view clusters and their contents but analyze key relationships in their context. Interactive maps generated in VizMAP can be shared with non-users too.

VizMAP can help you

  • Conduct in-depth competitor analysis
  • Predict trends & refine your R&D strategy
  • Locate areas of risk & opportunity within your technology
  • Gather intelligence required for your M&A activities

Three different modes of analysis - Network Mode, Context Mode and Co-Citation Mode help you visually analyze patent relationships, patent text and patent citations respectively.

VizMAP - Key Visualization Features

VizMAP allows you to visually explore key semantic clusters represented in a two-dimensional landscape built with many powerful but intuitive capabilities such as:

  • Generate Contour maps for technology landscaping.
  • Using simple mouse operations you can dissect each cluster not just by contextual relationships but also by companies, inventors, classification codes and others
  • You can define your own custom clusters and categories and investigate relationships from there
  • Temporal analysis capabilities are built-in and you can time-slice the visualization to reflect a particular period
  • Important clusters and properties are designated by the size of the halo behind it
  • Higher referenced patents can be highlighted within any visualization by a single click
  • Unique “Map-view” operation allows you to take a 30000 ft view and then zoom into smaller clusters around the bigger ones
  • You can conduct Advanced Boolean searches and highlight results on the visualization
  • Unique mouse-over operations allow you to quickly determine direct relationships between each property
  • VizMAP Viewer - Using the VizMAP viewer you can practically share a map that you prepare with anyone.The recipient views exactly the same map with full interactivity such as mouse-over details, zoom, search and highlight allowing him or her to understand, interpret and derive much more from the map.

VizMAP assists in various analysis activities such as:

  1. IP Infringement Analysis
  2. Competitor Trend Analysis
  3. Assignee Activity Analysis
  4. In-licensing Research
  5. Out-licensing research beyond citations

Patent iNSIGHT Pro Patent Analysis Workflow

A) Raw Patent Data - Patent Set Creation

  • Integrate patent data from online databases- search & download patents & applications simultaneously from USPTO & ESPACE
  • Search ‘orange book database’ and add information directly within the software.
  • Supply the patent/ application numbers from an Excel and download them within the report
  • Import data from commercial databases such as PatSeer, PatBase, Thomson Innovation, Delphion, TotalPatent
  • Modify/ add information to existing patent data
  • Moving patents from one report or catalogue to another
  • View and download references/ citations to the patents already within your portfolio
  • Support for file type of various journals like PUBMED / INSPEC / SCOPUS / SCIENCEDIRECT/ Scifinder
  • Generic Import Engine for Excel files

B) Standardize patent set, grouping & filtering

  • Specialized tools for Assignee/ Inventor Information Cleanup
  • Fuzzy Matching and Regular Expression based cleanup
  • Thesaurus creation and Management
  • Manual Patent Scoring and Ranking

C) Data mapping and analysis

Generate multiple analysis dimensions from text portions

  1. Inbuilt portfolio clustering to dynamically cluster patents around intelligent categories User defined clusters to create & manage categories bucketize patents by products/ market/ technology etc. as per ones requirements.
  2. Flexibility in local text searching and allowing categorizing patents by undertaking complex Boolean Searches

Analysis of patent portfolio

Answer questions like who are the key players in a technology? what is the filing/ publication trend and so on…

Report Dashboard gives an overview of the entire patent portfolio, gives instant insights of technology area. Filters the set of patents as per different bibliographic fields and generates key statistics for assignee, inventor, technologies in form of charts, graphs, etc.

Patent Mapping

  1. Co-occurrence analyser Multi-dimensional matrix that makes it easy to quickly generate and also analyze any patent bibliographic or text based properties with respect to another. Custom 2D, 3D and 4D charts and graphs can be generated for the matrix.
  2. Tabular and tree based Citation Analysis
  3. Advanced visualization of semantic exploration of data
    1. VizMAP: VizMAP is a visualization module that is available as an optional add-on to Patent iNSIGHT Pro for users who seek advanced visualizations above charts and graphs for semantic exploration within large sets of patent data.
    2. Contour Map: Here, records are placed based on their contextual similarity shared with neighbouring records. Closer the clusters, more is the relevance or correlation between them. Closely related topics collate to form larger land masses having individual peaks based on those topics that have maximum records. Labels for topics that are shared across various peaks appear between them.
    3. Correlation Map: Non patent nodes are connected based on common patents shared between the nodes. Thicker & darker line connecting two nodes have a higher degree of common patents

Customized Report Generation

360° Reports

Ready to print, share or present assignee, inventor, technology or research viewpoints facilitating decision making

Export Patents

  • Generated independent claims comparison excel reports
  • Create standard Excel or Word reports automatically

Other Features

Co-operative Patent Classification (CPC) is been newly added in different search, download, analytics features.
