Hi. I hope somebody else has already addressed this with iipserver, but I am a
I wonder which viewer should I install to let my site users view images using
Macintosh mobile systems like iPad/iPhone, or similar touchscreen dispositive
I have access to an iPad and iPhone and, as far as I know, they cannot use
flash. So my first look was at the iipzoom viewer.
When I access iipmooviewer page using iPad, the initial image is displayed.
But the usual zooming approach of iPad is too enlarge the web page area you
select with your fingers. This does actually work but the enlarged are is
using the same resolution tiles as the inital image shown.
So, it seems that iPad zooming system is not compatible with the ajax
requesting system used by iipmooviewer. Would it be possible (and easy) to
adapt iipmooviewer to communicate with iPad/iPhone?
Of course, I am not talking about developing an iPad application for the
iTunes store system (I strongly against it since it is a closed system: you
must use Mac computer to install they SDK, and you even have to pay to Mac in
order to develop applications for they store, even if they are free
which is able to somehow communicate with touchscreen systems and understand
the screen touchs as zoom (in/out) requests to the server.
I have no access to any Android systems by now, but I guess the problem with
iipmooviewer must be similar. Anyone has tried?
Although I guess Android phones would have not problems to use flash viewers,
properly on any mobile with touchscreen (using either iOS or Android)
Thanks for any ideas
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
I intend to have support for mobile devices in the next release of
iipmooviewer (javascipt viewer). I started working on this a while ago and had
some preliminary device support, but I haven't had time to make more progress.
An alternative for the iPhone and iPad is to use the Deepzoom app and the
IIPImage Deepzoom compatibility feature. I think there is a demo on the
But the best long term solution is using web standards. The forthcoming
versions of Mootools should have device event support, which will make this
easier to develop also.
Thanks a lot for your reply!
I think it worths the pain to wait for your upcoming releases of iipmooviewer.
In the mean time, could you post a link for the oldmapsonline demo page you

Perhaps Microsoft/Apple have removed it? I googled for it but no clues.
Perhaps not available for all countries? Has anyone installed it succesfully?
Seems that iipmooviewer is my only chance by now ... :(
Thanks for the new release of the server!
Any progress with iipmooviewer? Expected release date for the next version
with mobile devices support?
I had to put on hold work on iipmooviewer to finish off the server release.
But, I'll now focus on iipmooviewer. I can't tell you when exactly, but it
should be soon ;-)
