PTMT drills down to regional component areas
This table displays inventors and patents associated with individual counties. The counts are rounded to the nearest whole number. The counts include inventors with multiple patents. For example, inventors with multiple patents in one county would have one-half inventor-patent count in the other county, and vice versa.
While PTMT’s database provides inventor and patent information for a wide range of geographic locations, there are several limitations. In particular, it is difficult to determine the residence of a single inventor, who may be associated with multiple locations. The regional component area tables produced by PTMT include inventors and patents associated with multiple counties and cities.
The information in these databases can help you find out who invented or patented a new technology. The database also shows how much innovation is happening in a community. The number of patents issued in the area is rising at a rapid rate. Using this data can assist in identifying opportunities for local businesses.
PTMT drills down to metro/micropolitan area
