Demo Session: Developments in Sharing Advanced Image Data with IIIF (Room 5)

Following up on last year's lightning talk "Challenges Displaying Complex Image Data", this talk will address how advanced imaging projects are beginning to tap IIIF as a tool for sharing multispectral and other images. This includes prototype work to seamlessly integrate IIIF into multispectral imaging systems and work processes. Development of operating software which generates json files can offer a unified IIIF infrastructure within the advanced digitization environment. This includes collaborating with suppliers to align advanced digitization systems to the requirements for IIIF interoperability. Examples of nascent efforts to tap IIIF for multispectral image sharing include the University of Manchester John Rylands Library, UCLA efforts to use a Mirador Viewer to display processed palimpsest images from St. Catherine’s Monastery, operating software development for multispectral systems, and mummy cartonnage imaging with multiple technologies https://www.wired.com/2016/10/x-rays-revealing-mysterious-writings-mummy-coffins/. This presentation is intended to provide insight into initial efforts to use IIIF in 1) displaying images from complex objects, 2) navigating between multiple views of the same object, and 3) displaying descriptive information about the image capture and processing and results of research into the object. This lightning talk would be suitable as a part of a session on new and advanced technologies, or as part of a panel discussion.
