Gmap Uploader now supports DeepZoom/Seadragon

Now, all images that have and will be uploaded with Gmap Uploader will be available via the Deep Zoom URL format which means you will be able to view your images with Seadragon AJAX in your browser, and Seadragon Mobile on the iPhone.

So, either upload your image to Gmap Uploader, or go to the URL of a Gmap Uploader map you already have. After its done processing, at the bottom there will be a Deep Zoom URL. You can use this URL with either Seadragon AJAX, or Seadragon Mobile.

For Seadragon AJAX, I recommend putting this URL in the Embed The Viewer tool.

Once you’ve downloaded Seadragon Mobile to your iPhone, and opened it, follow these steps:

  1. Press the plus button in the bottom right of Seadragon Mobile.
  2. Select “Deep Zoom Content”.
  3. Pick a name, for example, “Awesomeness”.
  4. Enter the Deep Zoom URL from Gmap Uploader.
  5. Press the “Done” button.
  6. Be amazed.

Adding this feature probably means I need to change the name of Gmap Uploader. Any suggestions?

    Hi Kyle,

    We have used the gmap uploader in the past, with no problems at all, but we wish to update the image we have and reupload it using the GMap uploader, but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore..

    Any reasons why? Or are there any alternatives around that you know of??

    Sorry about that. It was just a temporary problem with new uploads. Its fixed now. If you email me your URL, I can reprocess the image you uploaded. Or, you can just upload it again.
