OPR tool for new portal launched in Brazil and Korea!

Operation Portal Recon (OPR) is an Ingress tool used to submit new portal request for Ingress players. These Submissions are used to create new portals in Ingress and new PokeStops or PokeGyms in Pokemon GO.

Portal are points of interest or action points in Ingress, just like PokeStops and PokeGyms are in Pokemon GO.

Niantic had closed portal submission some time back but now it has announced that their Operation Portal Recon (OPR) tool for Ingress has launched in Brazil and Korea.
