Once visited, you can see nice OVI map of place based on ISP of yours with clickable foursquare places to explore.
Plus current weather and forecast displayed.
Just below the map you can see latest tweets from location (refresh tweets works too as well as located news feed).
Little magic thing happens when a place name (or address/city) entered instead of detected IP.
For example Sherlock Holmes Museum - to see what's up at Baker Street -> OK.
Know the place and want to refresh memories? Or wanna check views of where never was before?
Look, geo photos from flickr and instagram are on the right...
Click for the picture full details or browse for next.
Previous tweets from specified location (as far as available) are reachable.
These tweets location radius is adjustable as well (to investigate the exact place or wider range).
One more cool feature is you can refine tweets within that radius for specific search words.
For instance, to locate tweets with photos from these geotagged scope just enter word (at bottom left) photo -> click search within!
Well, links on these photos (usually from fb, instagram, twitter, tumblr and others) are clickable...
Hm... looking for ... what if to enter instagram cats -> search within?
What are (they tweeting about) recent news in newspapers ... ok, let's check nytimes -> search within!
More results? Just click Radius+ to increase search area...
Still using google search? Better use (twitter geo powered) search within!
BTW, how about vine.co twitter videos from the place? Sure, click THE VINES to watch it playlisted...
API for vines: https://api.vineapp.com/ (unofficial yet).
Under tweets feel free to check what's top on Amazon by random category (at the moment from 10 available global locations)!
And below that are random space cats pics (for your pleasure)..
That aggravated assault isn't where you think it is. Due to an error with its geocoder, the Los Angeles Police Department mapped as many as 4 percent of its crimes at a single point, even if the real location was miles away.
Photo editing service Aviary has added a new HTTP-based API that allows developers to pass photos through filters, effects and even basic editing operations. Aviary "soft-launched" the new Aviary Effects API last week at SXSW, when we interviewed Aviary's Michael Galpert (video below). The new service could be used to create photo-sharing services like Instagram, CMS plugins to aid workflow or within social applications to create a standard look to all avatars.
With Twitter adding its own photo uploads, we thought it'd be a nice time to go through some of the intelligent mashups that use photos posted to Twitter in an interesting way. I bet a lot of these will get some nice updates to integrate the official Twitter photo capability. First of all, we'll talk about the recent Mashup of the Day, Hashtagram.
