theDataMap™ is an online portal for documenting flows of personal data.
The goal is to produce a detailed description of personal data flows in the United States.
A comprehensive data map will encourage new uses of personal data, help innovators find new
data sources, and educate the public and inform policy makers on data sharing practices
so society can act responsibly to reap benefits from sharing while addressing risks for harm.
To accomplish this goal, the portal engages
members of the public in a game-like environment to report and vet reports of personal data sharing.
