- IIP Server vs DeepZoom: IIP Server uses pyramidal TIFFs which are largely recognized by many tools and libraries. DZI format used by DeepZoom (and Seadragon Ajax) is mostly dealt with by MS tools. Hence the difference in Image Preparatton section.
- Seadragon Ajax license seems to prevent us from publishing our changes in code - if we make such. It also states:
modify or distribute the Software so that any part of it becomes
subject to an Excluded License. An Excluded License is one that
requires, as a condition of use, modification or distribution,
- the code be disclosed or distributed in source code form; or
- others have the right to modify it.
I am not an expert but this seems to limit the license we are going to be able give to other developers to use our code/tools.
This is why I have given less points in the Open Sourcen section.
