"Trackography is a Tactical Tech project that aims to increase transparency about the data industry by illustrating who is tracking us when we read our favorite news online. It is an interactive map that shows which companies track us and how some of them handle our data based on their privacy policies. It also shows the routes and countries our data travels to before reaching the servers of the tracking companies and media websites. " (https://myshadow.org/trackography)
"Tactical Tech recently launched a new project on online tracking, "Trackography" 
Trackography is part of our MyShadow project (https://myshadow.org) and aims to increase global transparency about the data collection industry.
Our open source project illustrates which companies track us when we read the news online, where our data travels to and how our data is handled everytime we access a media website within a period of time.
In particular, when we access media websites Trackography shows:
1. the companies that track us
2. the countries which host the servers of these media websites
3. the countries which host the servers of tracking companies
4. the countries which own the network infrastructure required to access the servers of media websites and tracking companies
5. information about how some of the prevailing tracking companies handle our data
The global data industry has been very opaque until now. We have developed Trackography to not only increase transparency about the data collection industry, but to also start a discussion on unseen and unconsented data collection and on the politics of data."
