Digital Commons Co-operative Mapping and data for the common good
The Digital Commons Cooperative develops community tech that helps social movements defend the planet and re-generate the economy we need for a fairer world.

With our data mapping and sharing tools, people can build projects and commons together, so that our data can produce genuine value for our communities.
The data that water companies gather could be made more easily accessible to local river protection groups to help them preserve natural areas.
The very same data that real estate companies use to find new plots for luxury apartment blocks can be used by local communities to create affordable housing.
The techniques that Google employs to help you find the best local café can be harnessed so that change-making organisations can connect with others nearby.

Our Tools

Land Explorer
Our mapping tool LandExplorer helps community development projects find information on land.
Via our community mapping software Mykomaps, communities and cooperatives can map and explore their connections with each other.
With our app Twine, community businesses can track and analyse volunteer and visitor activity.
