Ingress is a near-real time augmented reality massively multiplayer online pervasive game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google.
The gameplay consists of establishing "portals" at places of public art, landmarks, cenotaphs, etc., and linking them to create virtual triangular fields over geographic areas. Progress in the game is measured by the number of Mind Units, i.e. people, nominally controlled by each faction (as illustrated on the Intel Map).The necessary links between portals may range from meters to kilometers, or to hundreds of kilometers in operations of considerable logistical complexity.
