The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is the global forum for intellectual property services, policy, information and cooperation. As part of their work, WIPO produces data-rich reports highlighting trends and developments in this rapidly-evolving arena. Which firms are leading international patent filings? Which countries specialize in which technologies?
WIPO asked FFunction to dig into their data and create interactive visualizations to convey this information effectively to both specialists and non-specialists in intellectual property. FFunction gave these statistics a clean, minimalist treatment that references the diagrammatical illustration style of patent drawings. The interactive allows users to see the big picture and burrow down into the details through a variety of filters and concise details that appear on mouse-over.
