Welcome to OpenCCTVdragon
This is an experiment produced as part of a Hackathon at Cogapp.
Using a combination of IIIF images, OpenSeadragon and WebSockets, it playfully explores what surveillance of visitor activity might look like in a scenario where up to 9 participants can browse a collection of zoomable images, whilst having their activity monitored in real time in a simulated "control room".
To take part you can either become:
- `A viewer`. You can pan and zoom. Reload to view a different image. Click/tap the camera to open a control room
- `A control room`. You'll see the activity of up 9 viewers in real time in each CCTV monitor. You may only watch, the screens here are not interactive
If no one else is participating you can also play this game by yourself by opening the viewer in multiple tabs and watching the results in the control room link.
A modern web browser is advised.
