Having been playing Pokemon GO for the past few days, I would like to know: How is Niantic selecting the pokestops? The reason why I ask is because of how some less popular places get selected for a stop, while popular places that are usually next-door don't have a stop.
TL;DR: Anyone know what the PokeStop selection process entails? Are there any qualifications? Is there a bias between places? Specifically, does anyone know how the game mechanic itself works?
