Graph Commons is a platform for collaboratively making, analyzing and publishing network maps.

Using Graph Commons, activists in Brazil have mapped public-private partnerships causing ecological damage in the Amazon rainforest. Journalists in Turkey have mapped the network of NGOs aiding Syrian refugees. An art foundation in New York maintains an open graph about their grantees. A Zurich NGO monitors lobbying activity in the Swiss parliament. An art center in Istanbul organizes and publishes its archive and research as network maps.
