About Harvard IIIF
Two APIs: One for image retrieval, one for image display.
The International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) defines universal standards for describing and delivering images over the web.
These standards are the result of collaborative efforts across universities, museums, libraries, and other cultural heritage institutions around the world.
The IIIF Image API specifies a web service that returns an image in response to a standard HTTP or HTTPS request. The URI can specify the region, size, rotation, quality characteristics and format of the requested image.
Mirador is a configurable, extensible, and easy-to-integrate image viewer, which enables image annotation and comparison of images from repositories dispersed around the world.
First used Mirador as a stand alone application in a series of courses.
