Djatoka with Open Layers

Some of the pictures at Commons are huge. They take forever to load and they start loading at the top, typically not the most exciting part of a picture. It makes more sense to initially load a low resolution picture and download the higher resolution bits as and when required. This gives the average user a much more responsive experience. In this demonstration of the Djatoka software, you will find many pictures by Ansel Adams of the Japanese-American internment at Manzanar. The scaling of the pictures is done by Djatoka in combination with OpenLayers..
