Anonymous said: Hello. Would it be ok to ask you how do you make your fractals to be able to zoom in? Do you render a very large image, and do something like Google Maps API?
Hello. Yes this is the same idea as google maps. You have to render a large image and then break it into a “pyramid of tiles”, so that only part of the tiles need to be loaded to display the location you’re zooming on, For that I use a little program that, at least at the time, was freely downloadable at Zoomify. To display the zoomable images, I am using the OpenZoom applet, which is no longer supported. Another one is OpenSeaDragon. There are also several websites that allow you to upload a big picture and display it as a zoomable image, see Extrazoom, Gigapan, Closr.
