Cool Patent Search Tool with Interactive Graphics – Patent Cluster

Posted by Plish on August 19, 2009

While doing some additional patent work I came across another slick tool called Patent Cluster.

What is really great about this tool is that it has a choice of viewing patent search results in  ‘List’ and  ‘Visualize’ modes. Visualize mode results in an interactive graphic that subdivides patents by topic.  Its only weakness is that it doesn’t seem to capture as many patents as a search at the USPTO.

Want to take it on a test drive?

A screen capture for a search on the word, “antimicrobial” resulted in the following graphic.  Click on it and it will take you to the actual search page where you can play with the interface yourself.
