Trackography is an open-source project of Tactical Tech that aims to increase transparency about the online data industry by illustrating who tracks us online and where our data travels to when we access websites. In particular, Trackography shows:

– the companies that track us
– the countries which host the servers of the websites we access
– the countries which host the servers of tracking companies
– the countries which host the network infrastructure required to reach the servers of websites and tracking companies
– information about how some of the “globally prevailing tracking companies” handle our data based on their privacy policies
