Sourcemap is a web-based tool for visualizing global supply chains and the history behind products. Built as a web 2.0 website, sourcemap.org allows producers, designers and investigators to plot the probable supply chain of a product in terms of materials, provenance and environmental impact. In turn, users can produce supply chains maps, discover the likely toxicity, carbon footprint and recyclability of materials, and embed this information in their web sites or print a QR code to link their tangible products to their respective sourcemaps. The site has also been used to help calculate the ideal location for international meetings and to help visualize the flow of money, resources and ideas as their influence spreads across the world.
