Instagram Photos on Google Maps

Foodogram is a real-time Google Map showing the location of the latest food related photographs submitted to the Instagram photo-sharing website.

As a new food photograph is added to Instagram it is displayed beneath the map and the map itself moves to the photographer's location. I do love maps but I can't help thinking that the map is given too much screen real-estate on this app and more prominence should be given to the photographs.

Mapstagram is a super-fast real-time Google Map of photos taken with the Instagram iPhone app.

When the Mapstagram map first loads it displays the most recent photos from a number of U.S. cities. After the initial photos have loaded Mapstagram goes into real-time mode. As photos are uploaded by users in these cities, they are immediately displayed on the map in real time.
