AI-SDV 2021 Mapping Canadian Patented Inventions [Open source patent landscape tools]. Mazahir Bhagat (Canadian Intellectual Property Office, CA)
…CIPO is currently working towards developing in-house solutions for patent landscape mapping using open-source and freeware tools [which includes] a network analysis tool developed by researchers at the University of Leiden called VOSviewer. The tool extracts prominent word sequences from the title and abstract fields of the patent data and their location on the map is determined by VOSviewer’s in-built mathematical algorithm such that word sequences that frequently appear on the same patent documents are placed within close proximity on the map…
VOSviewer is a software tool for constructing and visualizing bibliometric networks. …
