If you ever wanted to enlarge or scroll around an image that’s posted on the Internet, Seadragon technology from Microsoft Labs might be the answer. Seadragon makes it easy to enlarge, zoom and pan around an image to view the details… such as a map, drawing, panorama, or the produce displayed by a grange… Grange.large

The image to the right was reduced in size, but not compressed to retain as much detail as possible. As a result, it’s 165KB versus 63KB in the article below. After publishing this article, I’ll send the URL to www.seadragon.com and see whether it can be made into a "navigatable" image.

Okay, see the image in the Seadragon viewer.
