Sourcemap is an initiative to make information on the source of products and their supply chains public, so that we can make informed choices about their social and environmental impact. Developed by the MIT Center for Civic Media and the MIT Media Lab’s Tangible Media Group, Sourcemap has grown over the past few years.
We created Sourcemap to allow anyone — businesses, consumers, journalists and researchers — to share the stories of global supply chains and their impacts on the world. Since our site became publicly accessible, we’ve been fortunate enough to have some wonderful individuals and organizations contribute to our work. We have more than 3,000 published maps and over 6,000 mapmakers, some of which you can see at the new Sourcemap.com. (Read full article.)
