ViSUS WebViewer

Jump to: navigation, search

You can visualize interactively your data from a browser putting a simple javascript script in your webpage, as in the following example:

    <meta charset='utf-8'>
    <title>David Powered by Visus</title>
    <script src=""></script>
    <script src="" ></script>


    <div id="openseadragon1" class="openseadragon" style="width:100%; height:100%;background-color: black;"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var bXRoad=false;
            id: "openseadragon1",
            prefixUrl: "",
            showNavigator: true,
            debugMode: false,

            tileSources: getTileSources("", "david_subsampled", 29280, 70416, 32, 512, bXRoad)


This small piece of code will include a ViSUS WebViewer in your page that will allow to navigate one or more high resolution images (i.e. in this example the dataset called "david_subsampled").

You can see a live demo of this viewer at this link.

To customize the viewer script to visualize your data you need to change the getTileSources parameter according to the following definition:

getTileSources(server_URL, dataset_name, x_dim, y_dim,  bitmask_length-1, tile_size, false)

You can get the x_dim and y_dim information querying the server using the following API call:

curl -A visus ""

For more information about the server API refer to ViSUS Server Supported Requests.

This call will produce the following output:

1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
0 29279 0 70415 0 0 0 0 0 0
data uint8[3] compressed format(0) default_value(0) 
(interleave block)
0 3 time_%02d/

Looking at the (box) field we can obtain the dimensions of the data. The box field represents the extents in N dimensions of the dataset. So for example this dataset has x_dim=29280 (29279 - 0 + 1), and y_dim 70416. The bitmask_length can be obtained counting the digits in the (bitmask) field of the dataset, in this case 32.
