Unlike a Twitter Geo-Search, which is based on a specific geo code, Instagram’s location search uses:

(A) a list of approved, global locations

(B) an image match of a location landmark

(C) a post office delivery code

(D) latitude and longitude markers


Instagram’s location search uses a list of approved global locations unlike the geo search of other social media apps. Instagram gets the location data using GPS on your phone. Instagram then gives you details of approved locations using the data from Facebook. The approved global location data comes from the Facebook Location API which is used to calculate nearby locations for geotagging your Instagram post.
