Thematic Information Maps
There are many issues surrounding Freedom of Information. The FOIAnet discussion list often serves as a tool for those working at the frontiers of these issues to consult the international community about relative standards, principles and opinions.

Below is an example of how we have plotted the information shared by advocates via the discussion list on a geographical map. It shows messages of the FOIAnet community pooling comparative knowledge and opinions and builds up a picture of global standards on this issue.

The example below plots answers to two questions about the transparency of salaries of public officials. Below this map there is a list of links to other maps which cover questions of other issues concerning freedom of information.
