BOPI (Official Bulletin on Industrial Property), Spain 1886-1997
This search engine project has beeen developed by Francisco Llorens and Patricio Sáiz under the Collaboration Agreement between the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office and the UAM during 2014. This is the first full-functional BETA version.
We have run a new advanced OCR system throuhgout the whole BOPI collection from 1886 to 1997, page by page. After getting the text, we have automatically indexed all the words in a PostgreSQL database. The result is this quick system which is able to find any word or phrase within the whole collection in milliseconds. Then you get the recognized text and the original image in a PDF file.
We hope you enjoy it. If you do so, please quote articles and books. Add a note in your papers as follows: Francisco Llorens and Patricio Sáiz: Advance Search Engine for the Spanish Official Bulletin on Industrial Property, OEPM, Madrid, 2014" and this link: http://www.iprgazettes.org/
