Most of Apple’s (AAPL) partners are from the Far East, but did you know Apple also has 82 suppliers based in the United States? ChinaFile’s David Barreda recently put together an interactive visualization of Apple’s supply chain using Google Maps and other tools. The visualization is based on publicly available data that Apple publishes on its website, but Barreda’s interactive map helps put things in context. Totals are displayed by region when zoomed out, but zooming in on each area reveals pins in each city where Apple’s suppliers and their various facilities are located. The map can be viewed via the source link below.
