Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It's my first question here. I'm playing ingress and making a tool to calculate distances between portals and level of portals to link them. It's using static portal coordinates, which are written in code.

Now I want to take the coordinates from the map at, but I can't find a way to do it. Ideally, I would like all to find the coordinates of all portals visible on the map and write them to a file.

Is anybody experienced with making plugins for Ingress?

How do I get the coordinates (and titles) of all portals visible on the Ingress intel map?

This sounds more like a question fit for – deutschZuid Jan 27 '13 at 20:47
@JamesJiao I concur, definitely sounds like a gamedev question. – winterswift Jan 27 '13 at 21:10

Must have changed now because if you hit "Link" while you have a portal selected you get both the maps Long/Lat (LL) as the first set of coordinates and the Portal Long/Lat (PLL) as the second set of coordinates.

Example: Big Ben,-0.129092&z=17&pll=51.500775,-0.124466

Use your browser's dev console and save json response to /r/getEntities call -- this includes coordinates of all portals, edges (links) and regions (fields) in current tile.

I warn you- this IS what you asked in the original version of the question but it is not valid for the tool you are making:

If the portal was mentioned in the Intel communication chat (for example attacked by somebody, ), in the source code ('inspect element' in Google Chrome) you will find something like:

<div class="pl_content pl_narrow">Your Portal <span
class="pl_portal_name" ontouchstart="panto( 48.691753 ,  6.178264 )"
onclick="panto( 48.691753 ,  6.178264 )">Mat de Dombasle</span> <span
class="pl_portal_address" ontouchstart="panto( 48.691753 ,  6.178264
)" onclick="panto( 48.691753 ,  6.178264 )">(1 Place Dombasle, 54000
Nancy, France)</span> is under attack by <span class="RESISTANCE
pl_nudge_player" ontouchstart="nudge('@Pharaoh12', event)"
onclick="nudge('@Pharaoh12'), event">Pharaoh12</span></div>

Here you have the complete name and coordinates of the portal...

I know that this gives you only portals that have been interacted with, but I did not think it would be good as just a comment.

There is a Button at the top right corner of the Map called "Link". Press on it and copy the url and you will get what you want.

This is not what was asked. With the Link functionality you get the coordinates of the center of the map you're actually viewing, not the coordinates of the portals. – Kappei Jun 12 '13 at 16:14
@Kappei You actually get both, the center's and the selected portal's (if selected) coordinates. – Qwerty May 9 at 22:48
