Data To Power Prototype is a new experimental mapping solution that provides an interface for automatic data aggregation from museums to visualize museum global outreach and influence in different countries. It offers a new data analysis tool for universal use in museums to demonstrate their impact in different geolocations and to provide an inductive research platform for strategic development and growth.
The prototype builds on the award-winning pilot project Museum Soft Power Map, developed in collaboration with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Watch a video demo. The new solution significantly advances the pilot application by applying new approaches to data collection, analysis and visualization.

The Project "Mapping and Measuring the Global Impacts of Hallyu" aims to advance policy-oriented studies on Hallyu, or the Korean Wave, that refers to the current global spread and impact of creative industries products specific to South Korean popular culture on different parts of the world. It explores the Korean Wave as a highly complex global phenomenon that has different layers of manifestations across multiple stages of its existence from production to consumption in transnational contexts. The project will employ data-driven and machine learning approaches combined with traditional qualitative research to measure, map, and predict the spread, reach, intensity and impacts of the Korean Wave across different geo-locations to benefit a more informed, strategic, and evidence-based approach to Hallyu national policy and international diplomacy. The research will result in several (inter)national symposiums and academic publications which will inform policy development on Korean cultural global exports and impacts.
