Pokemon GO Pokestop Map applications could be the most useful tool for new trainers looking to plot their hunting routes.
Veteran trainers will remember the summer of July 2016 as both exciting and aggressively frustrating. When Pokemon GO first went live, like any new game, there were quite a few bugs to squash. The most egregious of these was the failure of the in-game Pokemon tracking system. Trainers would not be deterred, however—and thus the issue gave rise to a host of PokeStop and Pokemon tracking auxiliary maps.
Niantic has since banned such tools and discouraged third-party tracking after straightening the system out. However, that doesn't mean they disappeared forever.

While the days of waiting for the siren song of a fellow trainer screaming "Dragonite" and causing the entire population to scramble may be over, the relics of the time still remain.
The most prolific of these still running is POGOMap. This tool has a clean interface that is pleasantly user-friendly and easy to read. While it may not show rare spawns, it does provide a clear map of every PokeStop and Gym within a certain radius—with a unique marking for EX Raid Gyms. The sidebar makes it simple to search a location and find it highlighted on the screen. Additionally, POGOMap tracks nests and nest migration so trainers will always have some idea of where to grind.
Trainers may also want to try GOMap if they're looking for a more specific spawn. In addition to PokeStops and Gyms, GOMap will also reveal the location(s) of Pokemon sightings within the game. Unfortunately, while helpful, users may find this map to be too cluttered to read properly without zooming in quite a bit—a quid pro quo, as it were.
One final tool to be aware of is PokeHunter. Its primary function is to keep track of Gym allegiances and available raids. However, it has a frustratingly limited list of supported locations, rendering it useless to any trainers living outside them.
