IP NOVA is a free data visualisation platform allowing users to explore the IPGOD and IPGOLD data without needing statistical software.

IP NOVA allows anyone to search the complete patent, trade mark, and plant breeder’s right registries contained in these data sets and look for:

  • locations, be they regions, cities, electorates, or areas
  • applicants, as the data is organised and cleaned by applicant information
  • general terms, and suggested terms
  • technology classes
  • instant statistics, breakdowns of trends and download of the search result.

IP Nova is live, and we are seeking ongoing feedback on its look, features and usability. Please send your thoughts to

IP Australia and Swinburne University are also collaborating to produce an internationally-linked trade mark database, called ‘TM-link’. For more information on TM-link please visit the TM-link website.
