Follow The Money

FollowTheMoney (FtM) is a data model for anti-corruption investigations. It contains definitions of the entities relevant in such research (like people or companies) and tools that let you generate, validate, and export such data easily. Entities can reference each other, thus creating a graph of relationships.

FtM is developed by the Organized Crime and Corruption Project (OCCRP).

FtM can be used in three contexts: as a command-line utility, a Python library, and as a TypeScript/JavaScript library. The ontology defined by FtM also includes a model for various types of documents that might be used as evidence in investigations.

investigraph uses FtM to model and parse entities.
