New Nearby Map in Photos and Magazine


Quite a while ago we launched the Nearby sections in Photos and Magazine. Though the feedback has been good, a lot of you asked for the ability to zoom in and complained about the lack of certain locations. So we’ve decided to improve it.

It began as an experiment in our playground, and crashed our servers right away, we worked on the caching, the way it works, launched it again and suddenly the servers seemed fine. So we think it’s ready for the wild and are giving it a go.

All photos and locations put on a nearby map

So now you can also browse the world in Photos with around 700,000 geotagged photos and Magazine with around 6,300 LomoLocations – as a special we also show LomoLocations in other languages at the end of the list or if there are no locations.

Please feedback in the comments what you think of it.
