CASA is proud to announce the release of the Image Cutter software for Google Maps. Written by Richard Milton, as part of the GeoVue project, Image Cutter is an application designed to take any image or a digital photo and cut it into tiles which are subsequently displayed on a Google Map. Using this tool, large images can be published on the web in a format that allow the user to pan and zoom using the standard Google Maps interface – as illustrated in the working example below.
Although publishing large digital photos is the most obvious application, this technique can be used for annotated maps of an area that are not to scale e.g. directions for how to get to the office.
