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.
