Drawings resolution

Post by jpatent » Tue Apr 06, 2021 4:46 pm

Dear OPS Teams,

I am facing some resolution issues when it comes to downloading drawings.

Ex.: I download the first drawing for the publication KR102216267B1 (http://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/pu ... e?Range=10).

But when I look at the same drawing displayed in Espacenet (https://worldwide.espacenet.com/patent/ ... 02216267B1) the resolution is much higher.

Is it an issue on my side and are there any ways to fix this ?

Best regards

EPO / OPS Support

Dear Jpat,

Espacenet is using newer version of images backend at the moment, but this will at some point be aligned with the new version of OPS.
At the moment, you can only get data as currently available in OPS. I had a look at both and the version from OPS is still very good, although not as great as the one in Espacenet, but that goes only for images that have colours and we don't have many offices yet providing those in colours.

Vesna for OPS
