    • Medical School retreat on Friday - not presenting this time, short notice

  5. Presentation by Harald Waxenegger on Openlayers and OMERO

    • Similar to Luca’s presentation last week
    • This is just testing stage. Leaflet.js and OpenLayers
    • Both are originally for maps, but also good at tiling
    • Leaflet.js not such a good choice - too closely tied to geographic data
    • Will just concentrate on OpenLayers
    • Demo: can view, pan, display ROIs, draw ROIs etc.
    • Some shapes not supported, E.g. ellipse, rectangle.
    • Have to code your own - Done for rectangle but not ellipse yet.
    • Drag to select shapes and drag selected shapes is built-in.
    • Bit slow just now, no caching yet (except in browser)
    • Works for non-tiled images too (without using pyramid)
    • Uses Google closure under the hood - OO easy to extend.
    • Aggressively compress builds
    • Uses canvas
    • WebGL rendering - in beta currently
    • Easily extend with CSS
    • Disadvantages: Google closure and OpenLayers both have learning curve
    • Some bugs
    • Simple interactions (zoom etc) out of the box
    • Some work to manipulate data into a form that can be used by OpenLayers
    • Jason: what’s the next step?
    • JM: Openlayers looking good. Tidy up hacks, compare performance side by side with existing viewer.
    • Jason: Design phase? Or more investigation?
    • JM: bit more work to do for ROIs.
    • Harald: yes, but looking like customisations are possible.
    • Will: Masks now supported in web and Insight
    • Harald: Caching, provided by Openlayers
    • Will: other viewer features - rendering on client, loading whole z-stack etc.
    • Can these be supported in OpenLayers?
    • Harold: have to look at how to hook into the OpenLaysers canvas.
    • Images are often too big to load whole stack
    • Jason: many images are small enough to load stack.
    • Will: need to work out if we can do everything in OpenLayers (non-tiled image stacks etc) or if we need a different approach for smaller images?
