Tnx Ruven for you great application.
As many users already asked you I would like have an annotation feature in

You seem to have CSS turned off.

Yes, unfortunately I've not had enough time to finish this. Here's a
development snapshot of the IIPMooviewer with basic annotation support: http:
What kind of functionality are you looking for exactly?
Tnx for your fast reply Ruven.
The link http://merovingio.c2rmf.cnrs.fr/iipimage/iipmooviewer-2.0/ does not seem to work.
We would like to be able to draw an area on the image by using the mouse while
also being able to move around the image too . A possible solution could be
selecting an "annotatin tool" on the iipimage menu and then switching back
(using another button) to the normal tool that allows to move around the image
by holding the left mouse button on the image.
Would you plan to add this kind of functionality on the flash version too?
The link should be working now.
Yes, my idea is to add the ability to add rectangle areas onto the image with
the mouse and add either html content to them or perhaps even source the
annotation data from an external source. I've got no plans for adding this to
the flash version as of yet. But if anyone is interested in working on
annotation in the flash version, please get in touch.
One suggestion for iipmooviewer annotation support:
In the current example, with IE 8 (at least) it is quite difficult to see the
annotations because the mouse has to be exactly over the rectangle EDGE. Once
you move inside the rectangle AREA the annotation dissapears. I suppose you
made it this way to avoid conflicts identifying overlapping areas, but the
user first impression is that annotations are not showing up properly.
I suggest to add some other way to show up annotations. Perhaps a SELECT list
So if the user selects one of the options, the annotation shows up (same way
as if putting mouse over its edge)
I suppose this would mean we need a short title for each annotation (apart
from the annotation HTML content) so it can be shown as a SELECT option.
What do you think?
I haven't tested with IE, but in Firefox and Chrome, you just need to hover
over any part of the rectangle area. For things like using a SELECT, I'"ll try
to make it easily programmable so that you can embed into a web site and
Thanks. I actually had tested your example moths ago and I dont remember any
problems ... so I probably tried it on FF or Chrome. Again, odd things now are
happening with IE 8
Anyway, I think a select (or any other way to directly jump to the rectangle
areas) is a good idea for locating annotations on images which can have lots
