Drawings illustrate the technical details of the invention. They usually contain reference numbers or characters which are repeated in the description to explain the invention's embodiments in detail.

Mosaics is a collection of thumbnails (previews) of the drawings in a document. They are considerably smaller than the original drawings and so are faster to load. They offer you a quick overview of all the drawings belonging to a patent document. Up to six drawings are displayed on one page.

Note: Adobe Reader 7 or higher must be installed on your computer to display the documents in the PDF viewer in the Mosaics and Original document screens.
