Peekinto is a nice way to explore the world through the latest Instagram photos and Google Maps. Select a location on the Peekinto front page and you can view the location on a Google Map and browse the latest pictures taken at the location on Instagram.
Select one of the photo markers on the map and the selected image scrolls to the top of the map sidebar. The map view also includes a heatmap showing the most popular locations for taking pictures on Instagram. For example, in London good vantage points around Big Ben and Buckingham Palace appear to be popular locations for taking and submitting photos to Instagram.
Unfortunately Peekinto only works for a limited number of locations, including London, New York and Paris. The creator of Peekinto also appears to be a baseball fan as half of these select locations are baseball parks.
