Roland Deschain mashup sample app
"The doorway was the Lady's eyes. Roland Deschain was looking through them".
Roland Deschain is a sample app useful for demo purposes. Receives events from Instagram in real-time and shows in a map the location where every picture is being taken. Written in Java with Vert.x and deployed live on OpenShift, the PaaS (Platform as a Service) by Red Hat.

Unstable, a few things to do:
- Automatically subscribe to Instagram API geographies (based on locations.json)
- Upgrade to Google Maps API v3
- Pause, rewind, forward, play
- Multiple geographies with filters
- Better cache architecture, maybe Redis
