##Note The same application can be used for any other instagram project. Say mapping dustbins or bus stops etc with very little change. Let me know if you plan to use it.

if you are serious about running this project locally then get your own Instagram API keys and replace it in instagram.php. As of now it uses my id. Please don't abuse.
