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. Mirador has been optimized to display resources from repositories that support the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) APIs. It provides a tiling windowed environment for comparing multiple image-based resources, synchronized structural and visual navigation of content using OpenSeadragon, Open Annotation compliant annotation creation and viewing on deep-zoomable canvases, metadata display, book reading, bookmarking and more. Additional information available at the official Mirador site.
