Instagram is a great tool for sharing, communicating, and building communities. Instameets are a organic growth from the users of Instagram, who have organized themselves and meet up to take photos, have new experiences and expand their social network. 


Instagram is doing their part to support this grassroots community, and has a blog that maps and displays Instameets all over the world. Instagram came to Stamen to get a map that is easier to use and that highlights what is most important to them: the photos from their enthusiastic IGers. 


While providing them with a cleaner, more legible basemap that doesn't compete with Instagram's brand, we also restructured the usagility to show more photos at once and to clarify the call-to-action.
