Various entities might desire to leave markers at various locations in a mapping application for themselves and others. These markers can be provided by an entity physically located near the location associated with the marker and/or at a different location (e.g., entity is at a first location and the marker is associated with a second location). Further, different entities can provide markers associated with a similar geographic area. A user visiting the location (virtually or physically) can review the various markers left by others. In such a manner, the user visiting the location can have further details associated with the location. Different categories of markers can be combined and rendered to the user as a hybrid of markers.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
