Cultural Exchange Repository & GIS Mapping

The Robert Sterling Clark Foundation focuses on ensuring access to comprehensive reproductive health information and services, strengthening Cultural Institutions and improving the Performance of Public Institutions in New York. It required support and technology expertise for its cultural exchange database initiative. It needed a way to visualize its one and two way cultural exchange programs managed by a variety of grantees in a compelling and consistent manner and make it available online.

Internaut Consulting was retained to assist the foundation to research online global cultural organizations, databases, social networks and translation services for a cultural exchange database project related to its Arts portfolio. It assessed potential partners, technology platforms and methodologies for developing a global cultural exchange database. Finally, it selected an online mapping tool and developed consistent online GIS maps with unique templates for the foundation’s one way and two way exchange programs, and linked them to the foundation’s web site.
