This is a great idea, showing the pulse of a city through Instagram photos. This is something that could be expanded to include other types of content, social networks, themes, etc. Throw in a couple of keywords to filter with and you could have a live stream of content around a particular topic happening at that time. (e.g. @coke, #happiness, NYC or @dentyne, #connection, San Francisco)
This is Now
This is Now project is a visual composition which uses real-time updates from the ever popular Instagram application based on users geo-tag locations. The tool streams photos instantly as soon as they are uploaded on Instagram and captures a city’s movement, in a fluid story.
