Generally, any database is developed for the purpose of providing certain servicesfor retrieval or management of data. If rules or processes designed to extract andanalyze data in consideration of data characteristics are simplified and services are providedto users by visualizing analysis results in an easy-to-understand fashion, users will beable to get diverse insights easily without much cost or effort. If this kind of database isconstructed and provided in NTIS database as well (e.g., project data, research outcomedata such as paper and patent, personnel information, etc.) users might be able to get variedinsights on national R&D data. The approach proposed in this study is significant in that itprovides platform-based analysis services which can create a knowledge map afterextracting and analyzing user-interested data and subsequently visualizing the results.Furthermore, this study is intended to make users obtain insight on a research institutemore easily by providing analyzable additional information, not only as a list of researchinstitutes in user-preferred subjects after providing the results of the analysis on R&Dexpenses, but also in regional distribution and annual changes in core research institutes,focusing on those taking part in national R&D programs in certain fields.
