As well as oil, goods or capital, data is a valuable resource for countries. It is important for a nation to protect and preserve data that is produced in it.
Data Sovereignty is the quality of having independent authority over citizens' information. In this visualization we can observe how user data flows across countries.
The color of the country represents how the country is sovereign over the data it produces (red: sovereign, yellow: not sovereign, gray: not available).
Lines represent how data moves across web servers.
