National Library of Scotland: IIPImage server

Tags | georeferencer, customers, iiif, iipimage

After adoption of Georeferencer in 2012 for the National Library of Scotland, there was a request to adopt the OpenLayers application. 

Klokan Technologies provided an assistance with approach to fast and efficient web hosting of dynamic seamless maps, The JavaScript Maps API, based on out of copyright Ordnance Survey data from the first half of the 20th century. 

The proprietary MrSID image server used for distribution of over 65.000 high-resolution scans has been recently replaced by the open-source IIPImage JPEG2000 image server with the IIIF protocol (http://iiif.io/), implemented by Klokan Technologies GmbH. This application has now more then 85.000 unique visitors per month.
