In the Photos tab, you can see your photos on a map. Looks like the old Places is gone.

Not on my iPad, there is no map view.
I can see a map display with my iPhone 5 (os 7). What is odd is that the pictures were synced from the same folder on my desktop computer. So I have the same pictures on the iPad as well as the iPhone with only iPhone having the ability to display the map.
There must be a toggle somewhere on the iPad to turn this feature on or off, I just cannot find it.

When you enter Photos you can drill into more detail by tapping on the Photo timeline icons. Tap and hold then drag your finger to select an individual photo. To enter the maps tap on the on the Year or Title for the "Collection".

Stephen, your directions worked great for my iPhone, but again, this functionality is not available on the iPad. No tapping or dragging will bring up the map.

I see no settings, and I walked through the steps on my iPad 3 and iPhone 4 as I wrote the post. Try Resetting the iPad. It is best to close all apps in the Multi-task bar (not sure if it is still named the same). Double tap the Home button to reveal all open apps then swipe up on ten to close them. Then hold the Sleep button till "Slide to Power Off" is displayed then power off. Once fully powered off hold the Sleep button to start it up again.

I thought you may be onto something, so I closed all my apps and rebooted. Locations are still not there. I see the dates above each group of pictures, but no location to tap on and bring up the map.

The photos also have to be taken with a camera with GPS tagging capabilities such as the iPhone or iPad with cellular (includes a GPS chip too). There should be a location listed beside the date or in the title of those collections with the GPS data. I see Collections titled only with a date do not have the GPS data necessary embedded in the photo so there will be no map. The Collections with a location in the name or beside the year will open a map.

Stephen, here's where it gets odd. As I mentioned, the pictures I am looking at must have the GPS embedded.
The pictures were originally placed in a folder on my desktop PC. First, I synced my iPhone to include pictures in this folder. Then, I synced my iPad to the same folder.
As I said, the map comes up in the iPhone but not in the iPad even though they are the same pictures.
