Cool stuff in Google+ - Image details

A screenshot of the Google+ Image details panel

There are of course many cool things in Google+, but here's one that piqued my interest on the Geek-factor.

When you upload images to Google+ it goes to the trouble of extracting the images' metadata and producing an histogram of the image data - as shown in the screenshot above. I'd guess there's more on the way, judging from the tab-style interface that currently exists.

If this sort of stuff interests you, you might like to check out some of the Flash-based histogram and image metadata projects that already exist - the Histogram class of Joa Eberts' Imageprocessing Library for histograms [link] and on image metadata the "Finding celebrity locations via Twitter — Celebrity Exif data mining" post from nate of ZaaLabs.
