Fauna and Flora International is world’s one of oldest conservation societies and the founders of World Wide Fund for Nature. To publicise their work and to coincide with International Year of Biodiversity’ and Chinese year of the Tiger, the Shoothill team created a biggest mosaic Sumatran Tiger Zoom. Here’re some stats from the team: It’s made from 180,000 cell images; Because of its enormous size it’s very difficult to tell it is a mosaic at all; Shoothill believe this to be the first Deep Zoom to integrate Silverlight video directly within a mosaic; New code built to allow you to ‘fly’ around the zoom in ‘auto’ mode – try it, it’s very nice.
