OpenOil is developing open data systems around corporate relations in the oil, gas and mining industries. Using interoperable data formats, clear editorial standards, and drawing on public domain data, OpenOil creates network graphs of companies, executives, assets, and the relationships between all of them. So far we have developed two corporate network prototypes:
The network graphs built all use citable URLs of documents to verify the assertions of connections made between companies, and also store a timestamp and the identity of the trusted editor who is making the citation. All data sets and their visualisations are published under CC license.
