What is meta data?

Meta data is defined as data about data. In AcclaimIP’s case, we compute over 20 different values about each patent that cannot in itself be found in the patent data when we receive them from the various PTOs. For example, we compute many counts such as number of claims, days in prosecution, number of forward citations, number of inventors. Each meta data element can be found in its own column in the search result grids. Each search result can be sorted by those columns.
