Created at the MIT Media Lab in 2007 with Leonardo Bonanni, David Zwarg and professors Hiroshi Ishii and Chris Csikszentmihályi, Sourcemap was designed as a platform for sharing open supply chains and evaluting social and environmental impact. It was a collaboration between the MIT Center for Civic Media and the Tangible Media Group. As an academic project, all of the data and software behind the platform has been made available under open source licenses.
