Description (last modified by atarkowska)
How image zoom technology works?
The most efficient way to provide high resolution image on the web can be achieved by making an "image pyramid" out of the source image and cut it into small tiles. Whenever the user requests a portion of the image only the needed tiles of a level are sent to the client's browser. However, since this tiles are loaded by the client's browser or can be accessed over http, they can be easily reassembled (stitched back together), thus restoring the entire original image.
How the "image pyramid" is built:
We take a single height resolution image, break it up in to the tiles, stores those tiles in different resolution, and dynamically load pieces we need when we need those.
- 0 -> 1 tile
- 1 -> 4 tiles
- 2 -> 16 tiles, etc.
The now defunct Microsoft Seadragon project ( http://www.seadragon.com/) whose technology has now ended up in part of Silverlight core as part of Deep Zoom ( http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/deep-zoom/) is also a good example of server side pyramid use with extended browser functionality.
