Deep Zoom

Published on Thursday, September 9, 2010

Deep Zoom is an implementation of the Seadragon Software technology for use in Microsoft Silverlight and Seadragon Ajax applications. It allows users to pan around and zoom in a large, high resolution image or a large collection of images. It reduces the time required for initial load by downloading only the region being viewed and/or only at the resolution it is displayed at. Subsequent regions are downloaded as the user pans to (or zooms into them); animations are used to hide any jerkiness in the transition.
