Museum digital initiatives during the Coronavirus Pandemic

This map aims to show the digital initiatives undertaken by museums during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is part of a broader research project on the impact of COVID-19 on museum digital strategies being developed by Dr Chiara Zuanni at the University of Graz.

Given the exceptional times, the team has decided to release this first visualisation of the dataset they are creating and working with. They aim to expand and refine the dataset (you can contribute here), as well as add other possibilities for visualising and querying the data.

You can explore the map here.
