This project is to scrape the US Patent office website [url removed, login to view]
This is a work for hire and all rights to the software go to the hiring entity.
A User interface for the program has been constructed in MicrosoftVisualStudio C#. The user will input a search string and a button will perform the search utilizing the above website returning the count of patents found.
A second button will go through each found patent and gather data to put into database linked to an Access DB and also write the patents to files. Specifically, for each patent found:
- Obtain 6 pieces of data from the patent and put in Patents table(Title, number, abstract, claim1, fileDate, grantDate)
- Obtain relational table data to put in tables and link to the Patents table for that patent including Inventors table, Companies table, Classifications table and Query table.
- Download and save the text of the patent to a specified directory
- Download and save the image tiff file to a specified directory.
Please make a cost and time estimate. This seems relatively straight-forward for web scrapers. I will send further details and the user interface and the constructed Access database to enable more precise estimates if needed. I am an IP attorney but dabble in programming so need to have well documented code so I could make revisions (i.e. need more fields) myself in the future.
I look forward to working with you.
