If the truth really is out there, this interactive X-Files map might be just the thing to help us find it. The map, which includes every location that ever appeared on The X-Files (even the fictional ones!), was created by Katy DeCorah of Mapbox.

According to WIRED, DeCorah used data from Jane Roberts’s Mapping The X-Files project to create an interactive diagram that not only drops a pin for each episode location, but includes episode synopses, and allows users to search by location or scroll through episode listings to find their favorites. It’s an amazingly comprehensive visualization of Mulder and Scully’s adventures. Plus, DeCorah promises to continue updating the map as new episodes air, bridging the gap between the classic show and its reboot. Check it out here.
