按照 and 根据 are usually followed by "custom, accepted practice, rules, policies, laws, principles, etc."
按照 is when you follow it strictly step by step and apply it without any judgment; 根据 is when there's a certain level of assessment and judgment involved, before you apply it to practice.
In a lot of cases these two words are interchangeable, depending on what you want to emphasize.
