Nokia Image Space, an online community service

Saturday, December 26th, 2009 | In Phones & Mobile Apps | Tags: ,

On 22nd December 2009, Nokia Beta Labs had introduced their latest mobile application which is called as Nokia Image Space. This application provides the users a new way to view their photos and allows them to upload photos to their Flickr account instantly. Nokia Image Space allows users link to their Flickr account and allows users to spatial browsing of photos from their mobile devices.

The great idea behind this application is that communities build up an image based mirror world, by pulling together all the photos, location based information and hyperlinks relationship to that location. Partly filled by social collaboration and tagging photos with relevant and useful information. Apart from geo-tagging from GPS, the photos that you are viewing are full of oriented information in the metadata.

Users can start browsing and sharing photos in Image Space, this help to build a view to their part of the world. Photos from different Image Space users are contextually linked between each other, so this creates a better understanding of the place you are browsing.

When there are enough photos of a given area which have been made publicly available, Image Space will generate a 3D presentation from them. This feature will be added to this application soon.

The service prototype of this application consists of three elements,
1. Servers – For content and data storage. The servers also provide the APIs for creating the spatial presentation of the content.
2. Camera Client – The mobile client for S60 delivers the data when the photo is taken and uploaded to the server.
3. Web browser – A flash-based browser allows the users to navigate the Image Space, comment and communicate with other Image Space users.

Nokia Image Space Capture has been tested to support a series of Nokia mobile S60 3.2 and 5.0 devices with built-in compass such like Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 6720 Classic, Nokia 6210 Navigator and Nokia 6710 Navigator.
