Is there a way to see the grid map of my area where pokestops are allowed?

I had a Pokestop (POI) accepted about three days ago and it has not appeared. Is there a way to see the grid map and find out if it should be appearing?

    The Intel map of ingress used to display all the wayspots, but it hasn't been working that way since they added lightship

    Do not enforce any game into nominating wayspots. Or reviewing.

    Doing so can have significant ramifications for any game.

    Imagine that you're nominating a playground, a 10mx10m structure.

    If you nominate the east corner it's too close to another wayspot and in the same L17 cell and it won't show up in any game, but it's added to Lightship and that playground can't be nominated again because it will be marked as a duplicate by reviewers that see it in Wayfarer's view of Lightship.

    If you nominate the west side, it's in its own L17 cell, further away than 20 m. from other wayspots and it will show up in all the games.

    Which spot would you prefer to nominate?

    You shouldn’t be submitting with your focus on only one game. There’s currently three Niantic games and another two to come this year.

    If you find something that you think meets the criteria, submit it.

    You’re not submitting a PokéStop for that one game. You’re submitting a Waypoint that may be used across many games.

    Did you read my post above yours?

    Do you disagree that many times it's possible to choose a valid location that it's better for all the games? and that there are locations now that are a total disaster and will prevent that they show up in any game?

    How does it helps a person that they nominate a candidate and due to not being aware of the lightship map he can't nominate it any longer and that it won't ever show up in any game?

    I think it’s prudent to point out that the in-app nomination form and emails from Niantic all present the process as nominating for just your one game.
