AJAX-ZOOM examples, which are directly related to Hotspots

AJAX-ZOOM (for developers). Dynamically tagging images with markers (hotspots) via AJAX-ZOOM $.fn.axZm.createNewHotspot API. In addition, the user can leave descriptions for these markers. The coordinates of the hotspots and descriptions are shown in this example as JSON in a console. This data can then be stored within your application in the database or e.g. transmitted via "PostMessage" to another client.
Responsive AJAX-ZOOM Mousehover Zoom extension with optional 360° spins, multilevel 3D, videos, product tours and hotspots. It is integrated into the frontend of the AJAX-ZOOM ecommerce modules and is controlled over backend of these modules. This mouseover extension is actually both - a mouseover zoom with hundreds of settings, as well as an image slider, which is turned on by default on mobile devices. Please take a look at this example to learn more about other features. This is the latest Mouseover Zoom extension version, which should be used for new projects!
Enabling "axZmMode" option will let the mouseover extension act as most other AJAX-ZOOM examples: the AJAX-ZOOM player is displayed directly inline. Users can zoom in with mouse wheel / pinch zoom without clicking on mouseover image. Accordingly, the mouseover / preview images are not loading. This option is added within this extension primary because AJAX-ZOOM mouseover extension is already implemented into several e-commerce plugins / modules and it is simply convenient if you want to display AJAX-ZOOM like this.
AJAX-ZOOM mouseover extension integrated into fictive product detail page with color swatch.
Unique, Flash free online hotspot editor for AJAX-ZOOM 3D/360/2D player. Useful to define positions of clickable hotspots at each frame (360 or 3D) or just plain 2D images (depending on what is loaded in the player). The Result - a JavaScript file / code, simmilar to JSON but not always valid JSON, can be loaded into any other AJAX-ZOOM example by adding one line of code. It can be stored as JavaScript file or e.g. saved into Database. To display hotspots on 360 or regular images you do not necessarily need this editor. AJAX-ZOOM has numerous API functions to dynamically generate hotspots also from other Data.
Clean (without too much redundant code) example with a 360 degree product presentation, which makes excessive use of hotspots.
Open 360 product rotate player with hotspots as full browser window on load.
360 degree product spin with hotspots loaded into parent container with responsive width and height.
This is a demo where AJAX-ZOOM hotspots related API functions are extensively used. The task was to create an example where parts of the image could be dynamically highlighted upon OCR data stored in and loaded from XML files. The OCR schemes supported are "hOCR" and "ALTO", whereby it is quite easy to adjust the scripts to support other schemes. We have also extended this example to search within this OCR data and implemented an autosuggest javascript box. It can search within loaded "page" only or entire set of images (books, newspaper, technical drawings...) which contain text. Selecting a word leads to generating a list of pages and matches within the set of pages. Pages, which do not contain a searched word, are instantly hidden from the vertical thumbnails gallery. Selected words are instantly highlighted on a given page and the user can zoom into this word by clicking on dynamically generated buttons. As a developer you are able to extend this demo with your code. A perfect tool for museums, digital archives and other publishers. Especially with the newly introduced gallery swipe feature on all devices it is unbeatable.
