Niantic Symbol

Zurich


Found on day 11 after following a QR code in the video The Niantic Investigation 1 - Comiccon.
we can see what looks like a body shape ,most likely the statue of Escher in Zurich.

Hidden Info
The link to it from the board gives a passcode http://www.nianticproject.com/?id=chapeau57o. chapeau57o

Jarvis Drawing

Found in day 13 when click the day number. It seems to show Roland Jarvis and his vision at the age of 6.


This image seems to be part of something larger as hinted by the thumbnail for the video Roland Jarvis.

There are some dots to the left of the word Jarvis.

Solution
The dots are actually Braille.

Translated it turns into gmvnmvgstromv.

Reversing the previous message you get vmortsgvmnvmg

Using a letter replacement with this key :

G=T M=N N=M O=L R=I S=H T=G V=E

We get the word enlightenment already mentioned in Tycho's poster together with a similar image. This is actually a passcode.


Trans

Found on day 17 after following a QR code in the video The Niantic Investigation 2 - Comiccon. we can see the niantic boat and what looks like the Transamerica Pyramid in San Franscico (plus note the title trans).

Reverse the numbers and split them into pairs, as hinted to by the Thought for Today 11/26.

88 16 89 14 89 26 24 33 74

Add all pairs of adjacent numbers together and convert to ASCII to produce the passcode higgs29k.

Envelope

Found in a link in the Thought of the Day: Day 10 http://www.nianticproject.com/?id=00tod10 by clicking the A in PAC at the bottom

It contains the following message

k bpou kn myj zvou vnz vxr7koj myj ojzp7oxjz k njjz, vm bk22. 4p7o lp9 kz mp fjm k1qjzk1jnmz p7m pg 14 bv4, npm 9jxp1j pnj. vz 4p7 knzkxvmjz myvm myjoj bvz np gk3jz 97zfjm pn myj vzv xpnzmo7xmkpn, k zp npm 9j2kj5j myj xpnmovxmz k yv5j q7m kn q2vxj zyp72z qpzj v qop92j1 gpo 4p7 po myj nkv.

Solution
Using the following replacement

B=W F=G G=F J=E K=I L=J M=T O=R P=O Q=P R=Q U=K V=A X=C Y=H Z=D or S (depends on the spots) 1=M 2=L 3=X 4=Y 5=V 7=U 9=B

Decoded the message says: “I WORK IN THE DARK AND ACQUIRE THE RESOURCES I NEED, AT WILL. YOUR JOB IS TO GET IMPEDIMENTS OUT OF MY WAY, NOT BECOME ONE. AS YOU INDICATED THAT THERE WAS NO FIXED BUDGET ON THE ADA CONSTRUCTION, I DO NOT BELIEVE THE CONTRACTS I HAVE PUT IN PLACE SHOULD POSE A PROBLEM FOR YOU OR THE NIA.”

Metadata
The comment field on the original JPEG contains:

and the author field contains:

Battista Bellaso

Bellaso was the inventor of a simple cipher known as the Vigenère cipher. When the string is reversed and run through the Vigenère cipher with the key “ADA”, we get a URL: http://goo.gl/jHtfP

We can do a look up and see it was only created on the 1st of November (http://goo.gl/#analytics/goo.gl/jHtfP/all_time)

This URL links to:

Within the same page can also be found:

and:

“In modern psychology, inspiration is not frequently studied, but it is generally seen as an entirely internal process. In each view, however, whether empiricist or mystical, inspiration is, by its nature, beyond control.”

The audio files are mirrored and documented on the audio page.

Enlightenment

Original Link
Similar to the one found hackig portals Enlightenment from portals

Hidden Info
On the coat of the scientist you can see a new passcode einstein49r , that is mirrored
On the top left there is a series of dots and dashs
This is another visual puzzle
Put all the lines suck together removing the black/red areas in between
The result is below


Ingress

Original Link

This image comes from the A hoax article

Hidden Info
In the four corners of the image you can see '4r', 'h6', '3z' and '4x' respectively (you might need to play around with the image contrast a bit) and at the top middle part of the image your find the word 'conflicts'.

By combining all the hidden letters, you find the passcode 4rh6conflicts3z4x.

Original Link

Hidden Info
Top left corner has Niantic Project URL. Adding zurichhb (on the statue) to the end leads to a new image, in which two bodies are seen like the ones in Tycho's poster #5

Original Link

Hidden Info
The text 5pd6clamantisu4q7u is hidden in the image (passcode)

In the EXIF info has this
637154 23745 754613 32 132 7236 213 6237 374516 36471 321 52471 14237 6327 41327 7263 321 4657321
This to be solved requires a 7-segment display character representation

Something like this


The final result looks like this

After we can convert 6d 61 74 74 65 72 34 34 78 to ASCII and we get matter44x (passcode).

The Beginning

Note: this was posted to the site on 11/14/12 around 10:30 PM EST.

Original link

Transcription
Yesterday I posted two messages from a source that I can not dieclose.

This morning, Nianticproject.com suffered from a 3 hour long DDOS attack originating from what I beleive to be multiple governmental networks.

My guess is that this was a hasty attempt by the NIA to plug the leaks. A panicked tactic to do anything and everything possible to silence us.

BUT WHY NOW? WHAT DID WE UNCOVER?

Well, listed up NIA. You managed to knock me down for a few hours, but I'm back. And one thing's for certain. I have not stopped nor will I be stopped. I wil continue to post what I discover every day.

And I am not alone.

Truth seekers: If the site ever gets knoked down again, reconnect with each other and continue to expose the truth. This fight has multiple fronts.

THEY WILL NOT SILENCE US. THIS IS NOT OVER. THIS IS THE BEGINNING.

Ingress Homepage

Encoded text visible on the ingress homepage under the heading 'Labor Omnia Vincit'. Coded through glyph substitution - fairly simple but difficult to read, rough translation below:

'What follows is the secret hidden message from glass and martyr. We don't have anything profound to report. We hope you have enjoyed decoding this secret hidden message. Well perhaps not hidden'

As I say quite a rough decode and it doesn't appear to lead to anything although I haven't heard 'Glass' or 'Martyr' mentioned before.
