PokeRadar: Let’s crowdsource our PokemonGo Map

Gotta catch em all... but lets do it together!

If you have been playing PokemonGo, chances are that you already know that most of the popular real-time maps for PokemonGo including PokeVision are no longer functioning. Niantic – the company behind the game plugged the plug for third party apps that were using their API to get real-time locations of Pokemon around the world. Now what?

Let’s crowdsource our PokemonGo Map

There is another way to get that information – crowdsourcing! PokeRadar has a real-time crowdsourced PokemonGo map that is pretty good (okay, 100 additional points for using OpenStreetMap) with a timer and the ability to search for a particular pokemon. Neat!

The map is also available as an app on both the App store and the Play store. Since Ninatic isn’t going to be interested in creating a real-time map of the Pokemon universe, PokeRadar and Crowdsourcing is the best way forward.

PokeRadarGo_About_GeoawesomenessYes, the map isn’t really as detailed as PokeVision was, but the more people start using it the better its going to get. Gotta catch em all.. but this time let’s do it together 🙂

I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
