You're most likely looking for something like Glympse: Glympse Screenshots: "Flashing dot" / "See you at..." / Tokens (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) "Flashing Dot Locator": Yupp, see first screenshot: Luke is at (right arrow), want to meet you at (Java Junction), and you are "a flashing dot" :) Not unduly drain battery: You can ...

Glympse is an app which does just this. Working on Android, iOS and Windows phones, you can allow another person to see your location for a defined duration. The app sends a URL to the other person which will show your position on a map. This can also be used on a PC in a browser. The URL will expire after the defined time to protect privacy.

The Google+ app has location sharing which works reasonably well for this: Open the app and click the "Everything" dropdown. Select "Locations." You'll see the people around you who are sharing their location with you. You'll probably need to add your family using the "person list" icon in the middle-bottom of the screen and selecting "Invite more people."

There is the Image Identification Project from Wolfram Alpha. You drop an image onto the webapp and it has a go at identifying it. It works pretty well for landmarks. The identification is not perfect and you may just get a generic answer like "Building", which isn't as helpful as you would like. However, it may go some way towards what you are after.

A crowdsourced platform that may meet these criteria is Scoutt (also see http://petapixel.com/2015/07/17/scoutt-a-crowdsourced-map-for-finding-and-sharing-photo-locations/ ). Another possibility is https://www.reddit.com/r/wherewasthistaken/ .

An option is to use Google+. Once you have the Google+ app, go to Locations. You can customize who can see your current location very easily. It's not as fancy as Glympse, but gets the job done, especially if you already happen to have it on your phone.

You could create one or sevaral "heatmap" layers from your processed data. This layer then gets shown when the user has a birds-eye view (focuses on, say, the entire earth), but the "heatmap" eventually gets replaced with specific markers for the point data only when the user zoomed in and has chosen a smaller region of interest. You could also use "...
