GridPix is a web-based image presentation system that allows users to zoom in to portions of a large image and scroll around to view different parts by presenting the image as a layered, tiled collection of grids. GridPix is a collection of server-side scripts and does not require the user to download a plugin or an applet. The client-side implementation of GridPix is done entirely in HTML, and thus can be viewed on any graphical web browser, regardless of support for advanced features. While an image presented by GridPix will utilize the memory cache on both the server and client computers, GridPix itself is immune to memory leak bugs, as caching of images are done entirely by the operating system and the browser.
