how is MU calculate? and is Ingress using up-to-date data?
not sure if this is the right place (bug may be a stretch), but here we go
how is the value of MUs captured by a field calculated? I live in an area of NYC which is "ranked as third-highest in apartment construction in country" (https://licpost.com/long-island-citys-11101-zip-code-ranked-third-highest-apartment-construction-country-study) yet when i field over a block that easily homes 400 people i only get +20MUs. At the same time, i see much smaller (in area size) fields in midtown Manhattan getting +250MUs.
Given the population explosion in LIC in just recent years, im wondering if Niantic is using up-to-date population density data to calculate the MU count of a field
