FORTUNE -- Drawing on the list of suppliers Apple (AAPL) posted along with its January Supplier Responsibility Progress Report, ChinaFile's David Barreda has produced an interactive map that shows who builds Apple's products and where in the world they do it.

Thanks for AppleInsider's Kevin Bostic for the tip.
