Geo-tagging is a process in which a device data can be found using the geo-location of that device. Geo-tagging is the process of embedding the meta-data and some geographical information to video or photograph, such video or photographs provide us the location based information related to our subject. Geo-tag consists of meta data which includes the information of latitude, longitude co-ordinates; they can also include altitude and place names in it which helps in device tracking. This meta data is responsible for giving the location of any particular devices. It can help users gain data about particular location. Location specific information can be extracted from the device. These features are being used by Location based services to provide better services to the user. Location based services can be query based and can provide end user with useful information. Location based services are being provided by social media application like Instagram and Twitter. In this project, by using these features provided by Instagram and Twitter, we come out with the technique of locating eyewitnesses on particular subject which is provided by the legitimate user of the application. By employing the technique of locating the eyewitnesses by the description of the particular event and geological directions, the proposed application is able to locate the people of interest.
