|The www.patentanalysis.com search portal has closed as of April 2010. The company is now only providing XML data from the New Zealand IPONZ collection.|
Beyond Boolean and wildcard characters, users of PatentAnalysis.com also can use the 'fuzzy search' operator when constructing search queries.
The fuzzy search operator in PatentAnlysis.com is represented by the tilde ~. Using the ~ operator at the end of a search term will find documents that contain words similar to the search term. For example, searching for "moth~" will find documents that contain terms like "math," "both" or "moths."
