This application was created by the NYU School of Medicine Division of Educational Informatics: William Holloway and Marc Triola MD. The Virtual Microscope uses the Google Maps API to display, annotate, and navigate scanned slides.
These slides on this site are owned by NYU and were obtained by scanners from Aperio or Bacus Laboratories.
The application is written in Python and uses the Django Framework, Jquery, and Twitter Bootstrap. We like open source, so we made this framework and the scripts to tile slides available under the MIT License at our Google Code site: http://code.google.com/p/virtualmicroscope/
