Hi, when will the data be completed so that it really has all files since 2001 to present? It says Jan 2001 to present, but it seems that above list only has 2015 and some of 2016 data (last 5 or 6 weeks are not added either). Will this be a reliable page that one can plan to use as the source to download all documents back to 2001 and also obtain the most recent weekly files? Please provide feedback. The initiative of this uspto site is great! thx

Thank you for the comment! We want this to be a reliable page that you can come back to and are working hard to get complete/synchronized data in time for our July release.

What size is the whole database and where are the older patents?

Hi -- you can find all of the patents including the older ones (6TBs of single page TIFF files) here: https://developer.uspto.gov/product/single-page-tiff-images

Any plans to convert the oldest scans into OCR text? or proofread/transcribe the OCR text?
