Nokia Image Space is a wonderful new service though it’s still in it’s beta phase. At first, it doesn’t seem much different from other image viewers which can sync to flickr. But as we delve deeper, it’s true magic unfolds.

As said by Nokia

It lets you share your experiences, photos and other content about specific places as well as helping you understand their spatial relationships.

Simply stated, it takes information from the phone’s GPS, digital compass, and accelerometer modules and tags the metadata of the pictures accordingly. Now, when someone else opens this picture from image space, it checks for all other pics related to this one over flickr which can be accessed. When a suitable amount of data has been generated, it renders a 3D model of that part of the world. This feature is currently not fully-functional but should be so in the next couple of months.

Tested on: N97 mini, Nokia 6210 Navigator, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6720 Classic. Should work in S60 3.2 and 5.0 devices with inbuilt compass.

Known issues: N97, some sensor issues with IS Capture

Nokia has now released it’s Image Space beta for general users. For further information and download, go here.
