    • OldMapsOnline.org The other activities project results and plans latest development
    • Project Old Maps Online • Publishing: – Libraries are publishing scans on their website (with free software and pan&zoom viewers) • Georeference: – Online tools: only web browser needed. Visitors can collaborate. 3D visualization and overlays of maps possible.
    • Background of the project • R&D project in a public library • Moravian Library in Brno: grant from Ministry of Culture, Czech Republic (2009-2011) • Design of an open-source workflow for historical map collections in (czech) libraries • Open-source software development and customization • Online tools should replace expensive GIS software • Best practices and links, tutorials for libraries
    • Publishing • Free software for old maps publishing: – Pan&Zoom web viewers for your website – Easy and efficient publishing with tiles (zoomify) – Advanced publishing from JPEG2000/TIFF (iipimage) as free alternative to commercial products
    • ZOOMIFY, MOOVIEWER, OPENZOOM TILES PREGENERATED OR SERVED BY IIPIMAGE
    • • Really simple to use, almost no technical knowledge for publishing the high resolution images to the Internet • You generate tiles and copy them on your server, no further setup is needed • Original: http://www.zoomify.com/ • Existing open-source implementation for tiling software as well as for viewers
    • ImageServer: IIPImage • Fast image server, OpenSource GPL: for free • Color Correct (ICC profile, L a*b* space) • SourceForge: http://iipimage.sf.net/ • Displays TIFF images (stored on the server) • Zoomify-compatible (we supported dev) • Support for JPEG2000 (we supported dev)
    • Georeferencer.org • Online tools for collaborative georeferencing of scanned maps - you need only webbrowser – The maps are displayed from your server, the online tool allows specification of control points – Improvable in time, possible collaboration – Outputs: World file (GIS), 3D Vizualization (GE), GeoMetadata (MARC, DC) for search, Accuracy analysis, Overlays and Synthesizing of maps
    • Georeferencer.org – No need to change anything on your side – Possible closer integration if you would like – Supported formats now: images (jpg), Zoomify – later: IIPImage, MrSID, Aware, ContentDM (LOC), Luna (Rumsey), DeepZoom (WDL), XLImage (KBR), DjVU, ExLibris DigiTool/Rosetta, ... – Links back to your websites, copyright notice according your wish, you can opt out
