The tracking system of Belle II consists of a silicon vertex detector (VXD) and a cylindrical drift chamber (CDC), both operating in a magnetic field created by the main solenoid of 1.5 T and final focusing magnets. The tracking algorithms employed at Belle II are based on a standalone reconstruction in SVD and CDC as well as on a combination of the two approaches, they employ a number of machine learning methods for optimal performance. The tracking reconstruction is tested on the collision data collected in 2018 and 2019. The first experience with data introduced additional challenges which are mitigated with the introduction of new algorithms such as track finding seeded by calorimeter clusters and CDC cross-talk filtering.
