Some minor comments:

Global Priorities Project has merged into Centre for Effective Altruism (see here ). We are continuing to do research on questions related to existential risk, though we are not currently planning to write new reports on the topic like the report mentioned above.

Leverage Research, not Leveraged Research Toby Ord, not Tobi Ord 80'000 hours, not 80 000

though we are not currently planning to write new reports on the topic like the report mentioned above.

Although note that we have a significant one still to be released, that we are just polishing!

In general, I think this is a great map! Some more minor typos to fix:

Milan Cirkovic (or Ćirković), not Milan Circovic

Norwegian, not Norvegian

Holocene Impact Working Group, not Holocen

Dennis Meadows, not Dennis Medows

Carl Shulman, not Karl Shulman

In the reddit box: existentialrisk, not existentiarisk

I'm probably missing a few but those were the ones that stood out to me. I'd also suggest changing the capitalization of organization names, e.g. "Leverage Research" instead of "Leverage research", "Future of Humanity Institute" instead of "Future of humanity institute", etc. It's not a big deal but I think it would be an improvement.
