I keep hearing about pyramidal image sets and I'm not sure exactly what this means. So, I have two questions:
Each layer in the Deep Zoom (pyramidal) image is composed of identically-sized square image tiles (typically, 256×256). The bottom layer of the pyramid is a 1-to-1 pixel mapping of the original image data to a mosaic of square image tiles as shown below.
For more information on the folder format of the Deep Zoom images, refer to Job Folder Structure (uScope Navigator v4.5).
You may wish to refer to the Deep Zoom image format on the Microsoft web site for more details on its rationale and history.
