Geographic coordinates can be easily viewed and captured using the Zoomify Image Viewer. Four simple XML values are used to translate the position of the cursor within the image display into geographic coordinates: GEOTOP, GEOBOTTOM, GEOLEFT, and GEORIGHT. These define the latitude and longitude of the edges of the image in the display. Each is provided in standard format, for example "37,46.5,N" or "122,30.5,W".

Note that hotspots can be displayed in the Viewer along with the geographic coordinates display features. Use the standard Hotspots or Annotations parameters to enable text or icons in the image, as well as a list of items. See the Hotspots or Annotations examples for additional information. (Annotations are supported in the Zoomify Image Viewer included in the Zoomify HTML5 Enterprise edition.)
