CASK Virtual Microscopy Viewer

CASK Virtual Microscopy Viewer is an open source* web-based virtual microscopy viewer, developed by the CASK (Clinical Anatomical Skills) e-learning group at the Department of Anatomy & Embryology of Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands.

It aims to enable easy virtual microscopy, without software installation, by running natively in the browser: "Click and view". It can be used over the Web, or locally on a computer or from an USB-drive, and both on desktop and tablets.

Users (teachers, students) can place labels online (or local). Direct links can be obtained to a specific slide at a pre-set position and zoom-level and with specific labels.

Slides can be grouped (for instance for a practical) and accessed via a menu-system. Only references are used, allowing to allocate the same slide or pre-set view to an infinite number of groupings.

Details:

* It is originally based on the open source Brainmaps viewer.
