Gooii were commissioned by Royal Museums Greenwich to design and build a touchscreen gallery interactive for the National Maritime Museum, allowing visitors to explore the museum’s high definition images.
Technical Info – hold tight!: A PHP Content Management System enables museum staff to gather and repurpose their Solr data into customised themes, which are stored in couchDB. The touchscreen UI built with AngularJs utilises the Open Source OpenSeadragon library and enables users to smoothly pan and zoom these HD images. Launching the UI with Chromium in “kiosk mode” ensures a slick full screen UX.
To view the HD Image explorer please pay a visit to the National Maritime Museum.
