Waiting for the first PPW – Portal Photo Walk – I am sure they will happen…


Join the Enlightened……… #enlightenment  

Here is how to create a new Portal..

New Portal Submissions
( )

Help us fill out the play field by locating, photographing and submitting candidate Portals.

Steps to submit a candidate Portal:

Make sure your GPS on camera app is enabled (Open Camera > Settings > Store location > ON; you may also need to turn on Settings > Location services > Share Picture Location, if available).
Snap a photo with your Android phone with the standard camera app
Select the Share option for the photo
Share to NIA Super Ops (with the Ingress logo)
Enter a proposed title for the Portal and touch OK.
This prepares an email to our Niantic Ops team with the photo and location of the object.

Send the email.

Our operations team will review the picture and object location and then add it to the game database if it meets our general criteria for Portals.

General Portal criteria:

Should be safe and accessible to the public
Example types of objects:
Unique architecture
Outdoor murals
Historic buildings
Special outdoor buildings
Unique local businesses

Decisions on whether or not a Portal will be accepted will occur within 2-3 weeks. Expect a Portal to go live 2-3 weeks after it is accepted.

    The training mission is a bit of a pain to get past but that's why they call it training…
