Notes: Closes all active views in your dataset - only the Summary sheet will remain.
Requirements:
 
Color Cross-Correlation Matrix
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Color code cross-correlation matrix based on whether there are shared records or not.
Requirements: A cross-correlation matrix is open.
Usage: Just because cells in a cross-correlation matrix have a positve number does not mean that the terms actually appear together on any records. This script will color in all the cells with actual records.
Compound Field Filler
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Look for empty country items in an assignee/inventor compound field. Fill with value from neighboring, matching rows.
Requirements:
 
Count-Frequency Plots
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Create a Count-Frequency plot for each field in the dataset. Attempts to fit a 2nd order polynomial to the log of the distribution.
Requirements: VPv14 Dataset is open
Usage: Intended as a seed for bibliometric exploration of distributions in NLP, keyword, classification, and other fields. see Zhiqiang Bi, Christos Faloutsos and Flip Korn, "The DGX Distribution for Mining Massive, Skewed Data", KDD 2001, San Francisco, CA, August 2001
Create VizLink Chart

Requirements: VantagePoint v14
 
Export List Terms and Groups to Excel
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Send a List with Groups to Excel as a two column list of Terms & Groups
Requirements: A list with groups exists
 
Export Matrix to Text
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Export an open matrix matrix to tab-delimited, Unicode text file
Requirements: Matrix is open.
 
Export Title List
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Export to MS Word a formatted list of titles in each group from the selected field.
Requirements: A title field exists and groups exist in the selected descriptor field.
Usage: When there are too many records to read in a fancy printed list, export just the titles. This is specifically intended for exporting factor groups since the titles are sorted by the number of grouped terms they include. If you allow titles to be exported to multiple groups, titles will be prefaced with an asterisk after they have appeared in another group. You also have the option to list titles not affiliated with any groups at the end of the document if you want the document to include every title in the dataset.
Export To Gephi
 
09/14/2021
Notes: VP to Gephi.pdf file included with step by step guide for use, will appear in the Macros\Resource folder.
Requirements: VantagePoint version 14. Latest version of Gephi is installed https://gephi.org/
 
Field to Classification
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Create a Record Classification from a field of terms.
Requirements:
 
Make Earliest Date
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Go through a list of dates. Put the first one for each record into a new field.
Requirements: Dates are expected to be in YYYY-MM-DD or YYYYMMDD format. A field with years or other non-date information will cause errors.
Usage: Use to create a field with, for example, the earliest priority date from a patent family record.
Matrix Column Cross Product
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Export to Excel a cross product of row items by column
Requirements: A matrix must be open.
Usage: Use with a cross-correlation matrix to evaluate the total "connectedness" of each column, for example, in a cross-correlation of organizations by subject terms Note: Script is limited to Excel's maximum of 256 columns.
Matrix Column Sum
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Export to Excel a count of number of row items per column
Requirements: A matrix must be open.
Usage: From a matrix of classifications (rows) by organizations (columns), find the number of unique and total classifications applied to each organizations' records. Note: Script is limited to Excel's maximum of 256 columns.
Plot Fields
 
08/25/2021
Notes: Requires VantagePoint v14. Create a Rank by # of records plot for each field in the dataset.
Requirements: Requires VPv10 Dataset is open
Usage: Makes a series of small plots in a browser sheet. This is an example of using ChartDirector, a graphing package, and browser sheets to display information. Note: All charts are temporary PNG files in \VantagePoint\TempData\ directory. For more information on ChartDirector and to acquire a developer's licence, please visit the ChartDirector website.
