IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) is a modern visualisation framework
that focuses on interoperability between image repositories. Driven by the growing adoption it enables any IIIF based collection to be seen by any IIIF compliant viewer. This ensures a consistent user experience
thanks to advanced visualisation features finetuned for high-resolution content.
The IIIF framework mainly relies on two APIs, namely the Imape API and Presentation API.
The V1.0 Image API was proposed in late 2011 as a collaboration between The British Library, Stanford University, the Bodleian Libraries (Oxford University), the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Nasjonalbiblioteket (National Library of Norway), Los Alamos National Laboratory Research Library, and Cornell University.
The V1.0 Presentation API was published in 2013.
Two additional API are now available, the Search API and the Authentication API.

Machine readable data is becoming a standard for companies and organisations that use it to normalise and
connect their informational and content resources, in a movement following the rise of Data Science and
One can hear a lot of buzz about “Big Data” these days, which reflects
a general misconception about the exponential improvements offered by a massive amount of raw data.
The more data is good but not necessarily the best. The (more) discriminated data is much better as machines
can read and understand it from scratch, hence improving the semantic accuracy of their processes.
Enters here Linked Data technologies.
Linked Data (LD) standards has brought a great deal of standardisation in this area, as it is at the foundation
of core infrastructures such as semantic driven database such as the Google Knowledge Graphs or AI systems
such as IBM Watson. LD even sustains the whole data architecture of Wikipedia/Wikidata, which is at the centre
of the Linked Open Data cloud (i.e. Semantic Web), the network connecting all open data repositories complying to LD standards.
