I’ve gotten a couple of emails from the folks at Zoomify about their software product for use on Arts ConnectEd. Sounds like the enterprise solution would work just fine for everything we need including the ability to hit an outside script allowing us to save coordinates and zoom levels, they provide example ASPs that save Zoomify data into XML files. I’m sure we won’t use ASP but the example of the XML format they expect to get could be helpful.
The big unknown last time was how we could get the image slicing to happen dynamically since it didn’t look like the Zope Converter on Source Forge was going to really work for us. In the last e-mail they sent over a copy of a PERL/imageMagick script that should handle the slicing server side. Great news since we do almost everything with PERL on the Walker site that should be a good fit.
