YOU ARE HERE is an interactive online map, created by Sane Energy Project, in collaboration with the Fractracker Alliance and dozens of upstate allies. The map allows users to see the big picture of the shale gas network statewide, then zoom in on their own region, learn the current status of a project, and connect with the local group that is fighting it. The map shows hundreds of pipelines, compressor stations, frack waste or storage facilities that are proposed, under construction or already in operation in a comprehensive view that the fossil fuel industry does not provide to the public. By having this comprehensive information in one website, users can see how their local fracking project is connected to their neighbors and region. Visitors can also read the stories of others who are organizing around
