theDataMap™ is an online portal for documenting flows of personal data. It tells you where your data goes. The goal is to produce a detailed description of personal data flows in the United States. The effort started with health data and is expanding to other kinds of personal data.
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.
theDataMap™ is a project of The Data Privacy Lab of The Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University. Project Sponsors include the Patient Privacy Rights Foundation and the National Science Foundation
