We have moved to sourcemap.com, a completely new version of our free platform for researching, sharing and optimizing supply chains. There's nothing you need to do except register for the new website and we'll take care of migrating your data from the old website (this might take a couple of weeks). Here are some of our new features:
New Map Styles
The new Sourcemap supports the creation of different kinds of supply chain maps, including directories of suppliers (left) and maps with multiple tiers (center) in addition to our classic single-tier maps (right).
We're making it easier to document the story of products through embedded videos and photos: just enter the Youtube link or the Flickr set ID under the 'Media' tab and Sourcemap automatically opens the movie or photo slide show whenever someone clicks on a point.
Another big request has been to add a visualization of where impact is greatest along a supply chain. That's why we've added filters to each map: if you choose to show the weights and carbon footprints at various sites along your supply chain, you'll be able to toggle between the simple map view and a weighted visualization that shows impact according to the relative contribution of each site in the supply chain.
Drag-and-Drop Supply Chains
For the first time, you can create an entire sourcemap without typing a single word! You'll notice the new "Add a Point" button at the bottom of every map; this adds a point to the map that you can drag into place (or specify a location the old-fashioned way). You'll also see a new "Connect" button in each point's edit window; click this to connect this point to another one on the map.
