Patent Visualization Center

Whoa!  Check out the new "dashboard" site that USPTO just put up:

The series of gauges offers a visual interpretation of patent prosecution data, things like how long it's taking to get to a first office action, how many examiners there are, and the backlog number.  My guess is that the dashboard has been initiated in the hopes that we can watch the backlog and pendency time numbers go down because of new efficiency initiatives.
