A new feature for Instagram 3.0 is Photo Maps, which provides users with a different way to browse photos in the app. Geotagged photos can be placed on a map that appears on users’ profiles, allowing friends to learn about new areas.

Instagram Adds Photo Maps To Help Users Explore New Cities

Photo Maps lets you showcase where you’ve taken your photos, or explore where others have taken photos on a map. The maps “take you beyond recently posted photos and let you rediscover previously Instagrammed memories.”

Users will be able to select which photos they choose to add to the Photo Map by viewing the photos they’ve geo-tagged in the past. Users can then edit out the photos they don’t want to include on their map. You can check out the video walkthrough for this new feature below:
