Viewing Big Images Using Amazon S3

Zoomatron A recent post on the O’Reilly Radar blog pointed me at Tom Larkin’s Zoomatron. The Zoomatron uses the Microsoft Research MapCruncher to provide a pannable view of a large graphical data set, which just happens to be stored in Amazon S3.

The site includes a hand-drawn elevation map of an island, a high-resolution picture of Tom’s right eye and some NOAA charts.
