Access Points (sometimes referred to as Action Points and commonly called AP) constitute your “score” in Ingress. Various actions will award you AP. Reaching certain AP thresholds is a requirement for leveling up.
You can view your current AP at any time by tapping the meters circling your avatar at the top-left of the scanner screen. This will cause your current AP to appear briefly at the top of the screen. It’s also on your profile, which you can view by tapping your avatar at the upper-left of the scanner screen. You can also view how much AP other agents have by looking at their profiles: long press their agent name and select “View Player Profile.”
