Forward Citation Generator is a simple application that is able to generate forward citation trees while downloading the full text of each patent in order to extract basic bibliographic data.
The forward citation will contain the patent number, issue date, assignee, title and a detailed description of the main class/subclass.
Forward Citation Generator also provides access to statistical data like the total number of unique patents in the tree, the number of unique patents that are in the same main class/subclass as the target patent, the number of unique patents that are in the same main class as the target patent and the total number of branches in the entire forward citation tree.
