The Activity section is a chronological view of patenting activity by priority date. Priority date is the date the first patent application in the patent family was filed.
The shaded column of the activity chart is an indication of projected patent filing activity, based on previous company behaviour and its filing trends. Note that this is because no official data is available for the last 18 months, as all patent applications are kept confidential for 18 months, i.e. in March 2017, there is no data available after September 2015.
To view filing activity according to the technology area, click ‘Technology’ above the chart.
To compare the filing activity of two or more organisations, select the box next to the name of the organisation from the sidebar on the left under ‘Organisations’. This will populate the visualisation or table you see on the right.
Click through on any data point on the chart to expose a list of the underlying data.
