Google has acquired app-maker Jetpac, which analyzes photos from social networks to create city guides. 

A post on Jetpac’s homepage said that the company will be removing apps from the App Store in coming days and ending support for them on September 15. 

JetPac is a San Francisco-based company that pulls photos from site like Instagram, analyzes their location and then create visual guides of various cities. 

A Bloomberg report notes that Google has been spending more money than usual on acquisitions. In the first half of the year, Google has spent $4.2 billion. 

The companies did not release terms of the deal.
