Cartagr.am Offers Map View Of Geo-Coded Photos
Using Instagram API, new application presents a new, non-linear display for geo-coded photo-sharing.
Unsatisfied with the linear, time-based organization of most geo-social photo applications like Flickr and Instagram, Bloom has released Cartagr.am. The application uses Instagram’s API to create “a map of collective experiences through Instagram photos” and realize a more experiential and expressive visualization of location.
Cartagr.am arranges Instagram photos into a world-map display, allowing users to zoom in to view on highly local level, or zoom out to view the world as a whole. Photos appear in varying sizes, with ‘interestingness’ determining each image’s scale.
