Deep zoom & pan / multiscale image
I request that the MultiScaleImage library to be able to access isolated storage. There are many places where apps will not connect to a cell tower [e.g. in a general aviation (or commercial) aircraft where cell phones do not work well [it is illegal to use in any case] and also in isolated rural areas. Also, why pay data charges to view the same image over and over [aren’t music & photo libraries stored on phones?] And finally memory is very cheap. Some suggest that large images (even broken into tiles) are inappropriate for storage on a phone – that is ridiculous! If a user wants an application to host content, whether it be 1GB of music or 1GB of image tiles for a needed application that should be their prerogative. Local MultiScaleImage functionality is available on iPhone so please do not put WP7 developers at a disadvantage. If a user wants to pan around a large image what difference does it make to the form factor whether it is local or online - none! Please get this component opened up for isolated storage use in the near future.
Should be able to access deepzoom files in isolated storage. It should be possible to store the dzi files and all associated graphics in the correct folders in isolated storage and point to that, rather than a website. This would allow for caching.
Thank you for the suggestion. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
Keep those suggestions and votes coming!
Does the MultiScaleImage control even exist on UWP? I'm not seeing it but maybe I need to import some library or some Nuget package. If it doesn't exist, what is the possibility of bringing it over? What about open-sourcing it?
