‘Pokémon Go’ trainers gets AR Mapping tasks


Back in May, Niantic announced that a PokéStop Scan feature to improve Pokémon Go’s augmented reality effects. By getting players to scan locations, the developer will get what it needs to be able to create 3D maps of PokéStops. Now PokéStops will have a special design indicating that trainers’ll receive an AR Mapping task when trainers spin them.

The task will require trainers to complete an action either at the PokéStop where trainers received the task or at another PokéStop within a certain radius.

A good scan includes:

  • A 20-30-second scan that keeps the PokéStop in the center of the frame and is visible from top to bottom within the frame.
  • Maintain a consistent movement speed and distance between you and the object.
  • If possible, walk a full 360 degrees around the PokéStop. If walking all the way around isn’t possible, 180 degrees will still work.
  • PokéStop Scans taken in various environmental conditions (lighting at various times of day, different types of weather, etc.).
