IIIF Image API and IIIF Presentation API: Enhanced Functionality and Benefits

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation will cover the basics of the IIIF Image API and the IIIF Presentation API, featuring the enhanced image viewing and manipulation functionlity that the APIs provide, as well as demos of IIIF functionality in action and related software.

The IIIF Image API allows for the interoperable transfer of image pixels, using REST HTTP protocols to request regions of an image, manipulate image size, rotation, quality, and format. Users benefit from enhanced interactivity with digital images, with the ability for deep zoom and pan, crop, cite, and share regions of an image, and compare images from different repositories using Mirador and drag and drop.

The IIIF Presentation API allows for interoperability including information about an object such as image sequence, as well as the image pixels. End users have the ability to create and edit manifests, reconstruct objects using multiple images, build exhibits and collections, and interact with multiple views of an object. Users can also annotate images. Repositories benefit with the ability to re-use images without creating additional derivatives.
