iGeoPix is an iPad/iPhone interactive visual browser for geolocated photos. Unlike the current georeferenced pictures representations used by Panoramio, Google map, Yahoo! map, etc., with iGeoPix you will be able to see both near and far photos, thanks to a non-linear zooming user interface.

The variable tile size, bigger in the center and smaller near the borders, will further contribute to give you the feeling of a more immersive visual browsing experience.

Imagine to browse the map and get the most relevant pictures with a magnifying glass through a tiled view composed of three concentric levels. The first level is filled with only one large tile containing an image considered the most representative around the map's center. The second level is composed by tiles laid around the first level like a crown, displaying the next 12 images relative to the map area around the first level. Consequently the third level, composed by 36 tiles positioned around the second level, corresponds to a more distant area from the center of the map.

You can also view pix with the classic thumbnails mode (thumbs).
*** Search in google for "Youtube iGeopix" and play the resulting video "Flickr set iGeopix" and watch the 50+ snapshot photos.

With iGeopix you can:
* Visually browse the world by pictures in three modes: Map, Map & Pix, Pix Only, Thumbnails
* See the pictures in the classic thumbs mode: each thumbnail is positioned in its real geographical location
* Jump to your current location using internal GPS
* Tap a picture to see it in full screen mode
* Select a picture and go to the relative web page
* Search a location by name or address
* Send postcards to your friends by email!
* Share postcards via FACEBOOK, TWITTER (new!)
* Browse all the postcards (places visited) back/forward (new!)

Panoramio is currently used as georeferenced image resource.

Only a tip: start in landscape select "Pix only" iGeopix mode and “By Pix” browse mode, enter a search string, then click on any image to recenter and renew the mosaic of geolocated photos. To zoom, double click to see medium resolution, then click on "HQ". Click on “View Details” to jump to panoramio page.

We designed and developed the so-called "fractal view" originally for web browsers. See GeoPix and GeoPix Fractal View. A technical description can be found on the published paper Fractal Browsing of Large Geo-Referenced Picture Sets (by Davide Carboni, Valentina Marotto, Francesco Massidda and Pietro Zanarini, Communications of SIWN, System and Information Sciences Notes, Vol 5 - August 2008).
iGeopix is an iPad/iPhone universal application, designed and produced by Information Society division ( at CRS4 research center in Sardinia (Italy). (

Photos are too low-res, app doesn't permit downloads of pics


Not to implementor, anyone on ipad can screen cap anything with on/off + home (press both at same time), not permitting photo downloads only makes this process more painful and there are many apps available, I'm sure that will permit photo downloads.

Cool idea...lousy operation.


I get more apologies for not being able to get pictures than I do pictures. Map freezes, app freezes, and it's not the network. Small, low-res images (when I do get them). A disappointment.



It may be hard to grasp just how brilliant this app is from the screenshots in the app store. There are other apps that mash up geo-tagged photos with google maps, but they usually don't go any further than that. iGeopix does. In addition to the photos being top-notch, it also displays them in a radiating fractal pattern around your location of interest and dynamically regenerates new photos (extremely fast by the way) as you move or zoom.

I only have one suggestion for the developers (and a tip for new users). It took me a little while to figure out you have to double-tap the photo in the cluster's center in order to isolate and view it in HD. I would add a small tutorial explaining this and the more advanced features. Also, please add an option to open a selected photo in Safari so users can visit the related website.

Thanks for the amazing app!!!
