This presentation will discuss a novel use of IIIF technology, extracting road network data from images using a semi-automated computer vision application. As scholars turn to images for research, extracting operational data from them can often be a time consuming and error prone task. Primary research data for historical road networks can be obtained from images and often times is manually extracted. A recently developed open source software project, Histonets, aims to solve these problems by providing a semi-automated way for users to extract road network data from historic maps. Much of this technology is reliant on the IIIF Image API for delivering images. The presentation will demonstrate the software and some of the other applications for IIIF content.
