How to tell patents and applications apart, and estimate their relative size.

All patents and applications are displayed in the center, in what we call the Radian Diagram, which is shaped like a baseball field.

Patents are solid dots, patent applications are outlined, shadowed dots.

◯ – application

The larger the specification, the larger the dot.
◯ – small specification
◯- large specification

Categories in The Patent Forecast Radian Diagram:

How to select different patent categories

All categories for your sector display across the top of your Radian Diagram. For you baseball fans out there, think of it as the outfield wall. By default, all categories are shown.

By using the Category Selector, you can narrow down which category to display. For instance, in this example, Security (the bottom category on the left side) is selected. The Radian Diagram animates to show only those patents and applications in that category, along with two subcategories, Cryptography and Authentication.
