Dismiss Notice
How Does This Work?

You create a free account and set a Gmail filter to forward your Ingress email damage reports.

The damage reports are processed in realtime into the Outgress analytics and alerting engine.

That's the short version.

Is This Allowed?

We believe so, but you decide.

But My Secret Data!

No one on the opposing faction cares who on their team is attacking you. Do you care who on your team is attacking opposing portals?

Ingress Data Dumps

    Lots of people I've spoken to have said there's no point using Outgress to help them find unique captures because they've been playing for so long.

    The data dump could be a way of "back filling" Outgress with all the info it's missed. Have you considered adding a tool to process people's data?

    That would certainly be an interesting idea. How does one get their data dump (hopefully without too much trouble)?

    Instructions are on the github page. I'd happily let you have mine to help you dev.

    Did you already get a dump of your own data?

    No, but I can. I have a friend who was bemoaning not using outgress today and is keen too.

    Ya if someone can get ahold of their data, I suspect it wouldn’t be too hard to make an import function to allow users to populate their owned portals.

    We've got two requests in, they reckon it could take 30 days. Don't hold your breath.
    Would be interesting to compare data dump to outgress, or even to let people do an annual update so they catch all the portals that decayed.

    I have my data dump and a friend's. Where shall we send them?

    Really keen for this to be an option for long term players to get useful info.

    If you want to zip yours up and send it to me privately, I can see what sort of useful data we can extract out of it and make a self-serve utility to handle it.
