Silverlight Deep Zoom (aka SeaDragon)

In my second in the series of TechEd Questions I have a good one. Unfortunately it had nothing to do with C#, but that doesn’t diminish its cool factor.

The attendee, lets call her Suzie, volunteered to help organization working with an artist that recently passed away catalogue his work on the internet. She wanted a good way to post high resolution images on the web allowing the public to enjoy this persons artistic contribution. The first thing that jumped to mind with the Hard Rock Demo from Mix (http://memorabilia.hardrock.com) you have got to check this out! You can see the scratches on the guitars. Scott Hanselman has a great blog post with a how to if you want to create your own deep zoom images (http://www.hanselman.com/blog/DeepZoomSeadragonSilverlight2MultiScaleImagesAtMix.aspx). Remember to note that this technology is only as good as the original image so you will need good HighRes images to start with.
