17. September 2007

The new version of STN AnaVist (2.0) analyzes content from Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPI).

New version provides powerful customization for interactive analysis and visualization of patent trends
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society (ACS), and FIZ Karlsruhe announce a new and more powerful version of STN AnaVist analysis and visualization software. The newest version features Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPI), complementing the extensive patent content of CAplus, along with new developments in functionality that address customers' most requested enhancements. DWPI from Thomson Scientific is the world renowned database of value-added patent information.

STN AnaVist works with STN Express®, Version 8.2, to analyze content from STN®, the premier online service for science and technology. Now, in addition to analyzing search results from the multidisciplinary CAplus database and the patent databases USPATFULL and PCTFULL, the new version of STN AnaVist analyzes content from Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI), a database providing information on patent publications from the 41 most important patent-issuing authorities of the world.

“With the new AnaVist 2.0, STN has further strengthened its leadership in patent-related information,” said Christine McCue, CAS Vice President, Marketing. “The integration of STN AnaVist with STN Express, Version 8.2, offers impressive searching capabilities coupled with a swift, seamless transition to analysis and visualization.  Our new options for customization greatly enhance the user's view of the Research Landscape." 

“The addition of DWPI with its comprehensive coverage of all technology areas coupled with CAplus provides a wealth of patent information. STN AnaVist is now the only platform that permits analysis and visualization of both CAplus and DWPI search results, with content processed by STN® for optimal visualization,” said Rainer Stuike-Prill, FIZ Karlsruhe Vice President, Marketing and Sales.
