The CC catalog data visualization or linked commons is a web application which finds and explores relationships between creative commons licensed content on the web.

Being able to access visualizations of all the indexed content is a good way for the community (and CC) to see how much data has been indexed and find and explore relationships between CC-licensed content on the web. The data is enormous and includes more than millions of digital works.

Rendering this big data in the browser is a big challenge. The idea is to design efficient filtering methods and other structures, to divide the enormous data into smaller chunks.

The revamped Linked Commons will have a modernized user interface, would provide a more sleek experience, and will allow users to explore a graph cluster more efficiently.
