Landscape Search

A Landscape Search helps you make strategic decisions by providing a defined range of prior art relevant to your technical area of interest.

Cardinal Landscape Search service gathers a team of experienced search professionals who help you appropriately broaden or narrow the scope of the search based on your requirements. They then filter the results based on these requirements, and upon request, categorize references to assist you in reviewing the results. For your convenience, the results can be delivered in Cardinal’s Landscape Viewer.
