How to use CueChart?

Step I: Automatic retrieval of Subject Patent Claims

  • Enter U.S. Patent No. in the search bar and click on search icon.
  • On click of search icon, all the claims of searched U.S. Patent No. begin to display on left half of the user interface.
  • Select the claim of interest and click on "Auto Split" tab. By doing this, the selected claim will split into different claim elements.

Step III: Element-to-Element Mapping

  • From the right top corner, select "patent" if the prior art is U.S. granted patent, or select "Application" if the prior art is U.S. patent application.
  • Click on a claim element, and then select the corresponding relevant text from the uploaded PDF. Likewise, click on another claim element and select the corresponding relevant text till all claim elements are mapped. The line, column, and page number correponding to the selected relevant text will be automatically retrieved.

  • CueChart allows user to download claim chart in .doc format.


iCueMap is a proprietary patent tool, developed by iCuerious Research Services LLP, for automatically generating patent family maps. iCueMap groups patent families based on the priority information extracted from INPADOC.

How to use iCueMap?

Just input a patent publication number (without kind code), and click on search icon.

After a few seconds, an interactive patent family map corresponding to the patent publication number will be displayed.

The patent family nodes highlighted in pale yellow color corresponds to granted patents, whereas the patent family nodes highlighted in grey color corresponds to an application number. The patent family nodes highlighted in pale yellow and red color corresponds to U.S. granted patents.

  • All the patent family nodes are clickable. Once a user clicks on a patent family node, corresponding bibliographic details and priority data are shown to him. Additionally, on clicking the patent family node, arrow line(s) connecting the clicked patent family node to corresponding priority nodes is/are activated, thus enabling a user to easily understand the priority trends.
  • The U.S. patent publications are hyperlinked to Google Patents, USPTO, and ICUEVIEW, thus enabling a user to review the patents directly on these websites.

What are the main features of iCueMap?

  • AUTOMATICALLY fetching Patent Family Maps.
  • BIBLIOGRAPHIC DETAILS of all the Patent Family Nodes.
  • U.S. Patent Family nodes HYPERLINKED with USPTO, Google Patents, and ICUEVIEW
  • Clear depiction of priority information for U.S. Patent Family nodes (such as continuation, divisional, and CIPs)
