New Features Available - 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).
