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?

What exactly is included with a membership?

  1. I know this probably sounds like an idiot question but I just want to be sure I know what I am getting.

    From what I can tell, Outgress relies on everyone sending damage reports in so that Outgress can parse and sort said info, right?

    So if I don't have many people participating in Outgress in my area I assume this means that the data available would be severely lacking, correct?

    With that said, this whole tool relies on having a player in the area in which you would like to observe portals / players.

    Thanks for your time and this looks like a good way to snag data without breaching the ToS - I hope I will be able to find a way to make it useful!

    Correct... the more players in your area using it, the more advantage there is to having premium membership. If it's just you, it's not worth it. If you pull up agent profiles, you can see the stuff you don't have access to because it will be blurred out.

    Correct, Outgress relies on email damage reports. It's not intended to find GPs with any sort of accuracy.

    Thank for answering, what about player tracker? To monitor movements, i only got an update on him when he attacked my portal but that is all the update i got from him no more further updates on his interaction with other portals

    Again, it's based on email damage reports. If you are the only user in your area that is feeding email damage reports, the data it knows about is really going to be your own. Outgress becomes a powerful tool when you are aggregating bulk data (multiple users).
