Project Overview

Birmingham Library Deep Zoom

Shoothill built on existing Microsoft Silverlight Deep Zoom technology to create our own platform, called MegaFiche®. This allows the creation of large mosaics, with hundreds of thousands of images embedded.

This Shoothill Deep Zoom project, supported by the Library of Birmingham Trust and Creative England, brings you the wonderful Warwickshire Photographic Survey in an interactive visual search method.

The Survey was founded in 1890 to create a photographic record of the urban and rural landscape of Warwickshire. Shoothill’s digitisation project is catalogued 20,000+ photographs forming a searchable online image database to preserve a record of the area’s history for future generations.
