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.
