Comparing different companies patent portfolios and trends of their filings is a great way to get an overview of the competitive landscape. Just comparing numbers, i.e amount of patents for a given company, does not say that much. To instead visualize this data gives you a whole new picture.
Top applicants will extract the number of patent families per company (assignee). By default, the presented data shows all assignees. The user can group and rename different companies/subsidiaries in the section “List of assignees to investigate” by using drag & drop. These will be the companies to be presented in the analysis.
By using the slider on top, the user can select the number of companies to show in the plot.
