"Zoomify" View Added To Maps

Two of our map collections now use the "Zoomify" tool for map viewing. Zoomify allows for dynamic zooming and panning within a high-resoultion map image, without the need to reload the entire page each time. A navaigation thumbnail shows which section of the map is currently on display. Give it a try, and let us know what you think. The two map collections using Zoomify are the City of Pittsburgh Geodetic and Topographic Survey and Maps from the Report of the Flood Commission of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, 1912.
