Incorrect portal address/city information
in Report a Bug
Have noticed over the years that some portals have wildly incorrect city/address information.
This has lead to false impressions of impossible travel times.
See Freedom Center Church in screenshots below. It is nowhere near Transcontinental Drice or Metairie. It's in a completely different town across the river.
This is mentioned in the user comments of the portal.
We'll follow up with the Wayfarer team about updating the visible, displayed address, thanks.
@caderoux did the Portal recently move to the correct location, or was it always here showing the wrong address and the text description get updated to include the correct address? Is the correct address
1061 Oak Ave, Westwego, LA 70094?
This maybe because the location where the portal is located is part of a company or something that have the main facility elsewhere, and the address on Google maps is showing wrong data.
I remember one case, -25.43032, -49.268928 (900km wrong) but have seem one that is saying it is located in Japan...
@NianticBrian No idea on history of moves or edits.
1061 Oak Avenue, Bridge City, LA does appear to be a correct address.
Not sure why it might be considered Westwego by one and not the other but either is accurate enough and more accurate than the Metairie address.
It may be that the church property is owned by a person who lives in that house at the other address (the Transcontinental address is a private single-family residence), but I still think it needs to be corrected.
@caderoux does the Portal now show the correct address?
@NianticBrian Thanks, but I have no way to tell without a key or going there. COMM has now scrolled that out of visibility. I will keep it in mind if I need to go that way.
I am assuming that the old messages in Intel that I can scroll back to would not change.
No, but you can click on that and go to Portal.....
If you can get far enough back in game...
I've seen portals that have addresses half a world away...
I cannot click on it in game because it's been 3 days.
This should now be fixed, thanks.
