Mapping Cultural Content of the Collection

This research task contributes to the development of the Collection Appeal Power Index map that geo-visualizes attraction power potential of ACMI film collection to people from different countries around the world. 

While the Appeal Power Index takes into consideration such important information about ACMI collection  as its linguistic diversity as well as place of production of its holdings, at the moment, it does not reflect cultural diversity of the collection content. This task aims to address this knowledge gap and explore what countries and cultures are represented through ACMI collection. This exploration will add additional critera to inform the calculation of the Appeal Power Index. Furthermore, the task includes exploration of ACMI YouTube Collection that currently has more than a thousand video clips.
