New Features on gudmap.org - including enhanced TIFF display
Oct 18, 2019
We have recently added some new features to gudmap.org: enhanced TIFF display, re-ordered homepage links and easier copying of cite-friendly links for data records.
Enhanced TIFF display:
We now have the ability to not only view TIFF imaging data in the web browser but also to allow users to zoom in/out (for high-resolution data) and pan around to view finer details.
TIFF images are now converted to a tiled, multi-resolution format that allows you to interact with high-resolution images at multiple resolutions.
For high-resolution data, you can use the “Zoom In” button and then your mouse (click and drag) to pan around the image.
Our web app also supports taking a snapshot of the displayed image (click the “Take a Screenshot” button).
To view the image in its own window, just click the “(full screen)” link that appears right above the viewer frame.
Here is a link to an example of a high-resolution image of an adult human prostate wholemount from Doug Strand’s lab: https://www.gudmap.org/id/16-201C.
Other new features on gudmap.org:
Share your data more easily: Under the Share menu on individual record pages, you can click on the Copy icon next to the cite-friendly Versioned and Live links to copy the URL to your clipboard.
Improved order of homepage links: Based on feedback, we have re-ordered the links under the “Data” column on the homepage to take into account our strongest data offerings (in particular, highlighting in-situ hybridization and other imaging data).
