I'm still trying to get a complete count. They are candidates that were identified as part of the NIA Super-ops plan to acquire a database of sensitive-identified portals. Our previous XM surveys were producing a very limited set of candidates, and from what I can gather, the quality of portals in this dataset is quite high. I am trying to figure out how this database expansion occurred without proper clearance. It is possible that ADA is prioritizing DB expansion over internal approval protocols. I do not have that answer right now, and I cannot rule out that an outside interference took place. What I do know is that the new portals appear to have started entering the DB in the vicinity of Rome, and spread outwards from there (attached). I understand that due to circumstances we have been working more on a need-to-know-basis, but when I start getting shut out of pathways of information, things like this happen. If avenues of data are closed off to me, I cannot be held responsible when I don't know the exact consequences of that data. bowles
