More Details

Following describe is focusing on the features you need to know about this amazing helpful extension.

A) Why an About window?

The Ingress Portals Finder works only in the Ingress Map Offical Site.

That’s why this extension needs an About window: when you click the extension icon in other tabs, the about window leads you to the proper website.

B) Inspire me with a small donation :-)

find the DONATE link in the extension.

C) Main stage of Ingress Portals Finder

Click the extension icon on the tab where ingress.com/intel opened, you will see the main window of Ingress Portals Finder.

First, you will need to set the bounds of the area you concern on.

In 2 situations you may fail to call up the google map window, which would help a lot to select bounds. 1) Fail to access http://maps.google.com; 2) Default google map api daily quato running out. (Thanks, Google! The quato increased to 25k today - update 28 Feb quato goes to 500k)

Even when map failed to show, you still could input the bounds to query.

And another solution will be input your own google map api key to solve the quato problem.

D) Submit a query

When your bounds set, click “Query” to make the request.

Here, to avoid stress on the official ingress server, the extension will cache 5 minutes for the same bounds.

Be patient, the query may takes time, it depends on your network speed or the bounds area scale. But I don’t think it will take more than 3 minutes.

E) Filtering on the query result

The filter works on the query result. It won’t stress on the server.

1) Key words off the address; 2) Teams; 3) Levels

There’re tips on the level filtering:

Click the [a] to select all levels. and you could press “Ctrl” + click to click levels you want to list.

F) Which team is in charge?

The vertical bar beside the level number, you could see the status of portals – more green or more blue.

G) Query result

The result includes name, photo, address, resonations, (level,energy,link,mods).

You could get the location of the portal by click the google map icon.

The icon will call up an embed map window with marker of the portal. It will open a blank map window if the embed map api fails.

H) Level, Enery, Links and Mods

I) List result portals in a full scale map

Left corner of the portal embed map window, you could find a transparent button “All”.

It opens a full map of the portals in the query result.

And you could show the specific level on the map:

J) Set Bounds more easily - Search place by name

K) Sort by Energy/Links/Mods

L) Export selected level or all levels to KML

If problems or suggestions when using the extension, please leave the details or send me an email. Thanks.
