For a little project of mine I would need a database of Ingress portals (Name, Picture-URL and Location). I know i could extract it from the Intel map, but i assume someone else had made the effort before. It does not have to be "live" data, but a snapshot from the last month or so.

Do you know any such database? Or do you know a other way to gather global Ingress Portal information?

There was an android application "Portal Maps" a few months ago, but Google/Niantic make them stop because of violations of the TOS of the game.

I'm not sure it is a good idea until Niantic release a real API to try to extract the data from their servers.

As a partial answer it seems like some of the portals are imported from They have computer readable files.
