Photo Sharing on Google Maps
EchoSec is a handy little Google Map to pick up the latest photographs posted on photo-sharing sites around specific locations.
Enter a location into EchoSec and you can view the latest pictures from Instagram, Panoramio and Foursquare that have been submitted nearby. Users can search for any location and select a search area on the map. The latest photos posted from that location are then posted beneath the map.
EchoSec is a handy way to find photos shared around locations that are trending in the news or around specific events. For example, if you search for 'Summer Bay Resort Clermont, Four Corners, FL, United States' in EchoSec you can view photos from the current sinkhole in Florida.
