Panoramio is a mobile application which allows the users to find pictures of interesting places with a radar to guide one to them, using GPS. Since, the use of smart phones is gaining interest in people, panoramio was implemented as a smart phone application using Google's Android operating system. The application starts by showing a custom map view using mobile maps. The user can pan and zoom the map to select a location. Once a search location has been selected the user taps on a location and the application starts loading all the thumbnails of pictures of all the interesting places taken in that area. By tapping on any thumbnail, information about the particular picture will be displayed.
