Locating a National Collection through Audience Research

Locating a National Collection (LaNC) aims to help cultural heritage organisations to use location data—such as where objects were made and used or the places they depict and describe—to connect collections and engage audiences. Location-based interfaces such as web maps offer opportunities to open up collections to new audiences and uses. This presentation explores how LaNC is using audience research methods including surveys and focus groups to inform geospatial data structures and interface design.
