The National Gallery has involved with a number of projects or the years examining processes to store and disseminate cultural heritage related information. This page presents details and links to a few example systems hosted by the National Gallery.

Environmental Monitoring

The environmental conditions are monitored throughout the National Gallery. Graphs of recorded data can be viewed and manipulated and Reports covering the conditions recorded can be accessed. The data present in this external system only covers the external environmental conditions. Graphing Environmental Data

National Gallery: IIPImage Javascript Viewers

IIPImage is an Open Source light-weight streaming client-server system for the web-based viewing and zooming of ultra high-resolution images. It is designed to be bandwidth and memory efficient and usable even over a slow internet connection. The system can handle both 8 and 16 bit images, CIELAB colorimetric images and scientific imagery such as multispectral images. IIPImage
This example IIPImage javascript client demonstrates how groups of images can be displayed as a simple film strip set-up, and then selected images are displayed with the full IIP Zooming functionaltiy. Older version of this concept can be seen here and here. National Gallery IIPImage Gallery Viewer
This example IIPImage javascript client demonstrates how zooming on several images can be linked together for image comparison. National Gallery IIPImage Register Image Viewer
An IIPImage based system that displays the entire collection, at full resolution, all at the same time has been created has been created and can be found here. This example displays the possibility of displaying multiple image together in one client National Gallery IIPImage Collection Viewer
The Raphael Research Resource, funded by the Museums and Art Conservation section of the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it is a prototype system desinged to store and display a wide range of museum related information and makes extensive use of IIPImage. Raphael Research Resource
This example IIPImage javascript client demonstrates how images can be pulled from seperate servers and in this case countries, but still be displayed together in one page. National Gallery IIPImage Basic Example: Multiple Servers
This page has been set up to provide examples of some of the web based image processing applications that are being investigated in the scientific department of the National Gallery, London. National Gallery IIPImage Basic Example: Blending Images
This example IIPImage javascript client demonstrates how random details can be displayed from large sets of images. This can be done with a single client or in this case multiple clients. It should be noted setting this page up with 200+ clients uses a lot of bandwith. National Gallery IIPImage Basic Example: Slide Show
This example IIPImage javascript client demonstrates how multiple IIPImage clients can be include in one page, without using frames. National Gallery IIPImage Basic Example: Multiple Clients
