        There is with only in and out - 2 levels
        <SemanticZoom ...>
        <SemanticZoom.ZoomedOutView>
        zoomedOutViewContent
        </SemanticZoom.ZoomedOutView>
        <SemanticZoom.ZoomedInView>
        zoomedInViewContent
        </SemanticZoom.ZoomedInView>
        </SemanticZoom>

        Would be good to extend it to have more levels
        Thanks

        It means an image viewer control which provides the ability to render very large images (i.e. images which can't be loaded into memory), with the ability to zoom down to 1:1 pixels.

        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?

        Silverlight technology is great, most of the idea posted in this thread can be accomplish in Silverlight. Microsoft should release a newer version of Silverlight for Windows Phone/ Desktop 8.1 / RT / XBO.

        DeepZoom allowed us to smoothly pan, filter and zoom one or thousands of very high resolution images. It is the perfect tech for panoramas, product catalogues or even visual analysis of large datasets.

        DeepZoom is an amazing Silverlight technology, perfect for showing off the power of multitouch devices, such as phones and tablets. We have done several large DeepZoom projects for desktop Silverlight and even Kinect for Windows, and would LOVEEE to see the technology renewed.

        Control to send desired picture to native pinch to zoom controller. One line of code to enable native picture viewer with pinch-to-zoom.

        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.
