+NIA Ops​  Isn't it about time you stop loading portals at low zoom levels (Zoom level 1-5 (World view to Continent View) and only show links/fields?
Those zoomlevels are only ever useful when big OPS have happened...
It would decrease load time and reduce server load

Better explanation since it might be confusing for some:

On zoom level 1 (the entire world), only load artifacts and links longer than 500km (plus any portal and field associated with it)
On zoom level 2 reduce required link length to 250km and so on until zoom level 6 where all portals would be loaded.

+Robin Daemen​ ah okay. It's 7am here and I've been Ingressing in Boston since 10pm. I'm a little tired. I say having the option to reduce data use is handy but could be enabled by default. I don't run ops for the mega field ops but my portal keys are upwards of 5,500+ km away. My ops need to be able to see all portals in New England to Ireland, France and Portugal. Give the user the choice. If we didn't like to be free to make decisions we'd all be using iPhones..... 😇 😆

Ok, since everybody is talking about guardian hunting etc, let's talk about solutions for this.

I can think of 2 main methods of hunting guardians using the intel map
1. using the date in the portal details
2. using the comm

1 can be solved by:
a) showing the date only for portals that are from the user itself
b) remove the date all together

Personally I prefer option a since you can still see and track your own portals

2 can be solved by:
a) remove portal related messages from comm in intel
b) remove comm from intel all together

Again option a seems to be the best option here

So +NIA Ops fix this in your intel if you really are against this practice of guardian hunting

what ur saying is this :
if option A is enforced,   i should scan comms 24/7,  with all portalcaptures from comms i insert the date in the portal-record, and im golden

Option B will be a game-killer :) no more playertracker, no more attacknotifications in browser, only ingame.
if option B is enforced, im forced to interact with the game's backend-api.

any more bright solutions?

Dear +NIA Ops, isn't it about time we get a separate mentions channel in the comm... I hate it when mentions get overrun with portal attack notifications... +Brandon Badger +Ingress

Wow.... Can't wait until this gets in the hands of devs...
We are excited to announce a new project from ATAP, something that we have been working quietly on over the past year.

As we walk through our daily lives, we use visual cues to navigate and understand the world around us. We use our eyes to observe the size and shape of objects and rooms, and we learn their position and layout over time almost effortlessly . This awareness of space and motion is fundamental to the way we interact with our environment and each other.  We are physical beings that live in a 3D world. Yet, our mobile devices assume that physical world ends at the boundaries of the screen.

The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.

Our team has been working with universities, research labs, and industrial partners spanning nine countries around the world to harvest research from the last decade of work in robotics and computer vision, concentrating that technology into a unique mobile phone.  Now, we’re ready to put early prototypes into the hands of developers that can imagine the possibilities and help pull those ideas into reality. 

What if you never found yourself lost in a new building again?  What if directions to a new location didn’t stop at the street address? Imagine playing hide-and-seek in your house with your favorite game character. Imagine competing against a friend for control over physical space with your own miniature army.

We hope you will take this journey with us. We believe it will be one worth traveling.  To find out more, and apply for a development kit visit

The future is awesome. Let’s build it together.

-- Johnny Lee, and the ATAP Project Tango team

Instead of changing Intel, why not create a new page at

- No comm, links or fields (since real time data are of no use for a plan that will be executed somewhere in the future)
- Minimum portal details (location and title)
- Don't autoload portals, load portals only on places where needed (farm, anchors, ...) by means of a button (limit by zoomlevel)
- Tools to link/fields portals
- Tools to mark clusters/areas
- Save to users localstorage and maybe even share
- Use saved "drawings" as overlay on the intel map when operation is being executed

From a server standpoint, planning ops will be less load since only the stuff required for them will be loaded, and from a user standpoint, all things that need to be loaded will be loaded faster
