When you click on the board to open it,…you'll notice that it looks a lot different…from every other board on Pinterest.…All of the pins are in two columns on the left,…and there's a map on the right.…This map is a Foursquare based map…of the entire world and can be moved around…by dragging and you can zoom all the way…in to street level or out to a global level…with the plus and minus buttons…
