TileMill with non map images
I'm building a web app that will use the tiling, zooming, marker and other functionality associated with map applications, however i dont need to use all this Geolocation and other stuff that TileMill requires as my application will be loading medical images not maps. Is it possible to import a custom image into TileMill? If so how? Maybe TileMill is completely unsuited to my specific application, if so could someone suggest an alternative?
Have you had a look at one of these?
- PanoJS http://www.dimin.net/software/panojs/
- jQuery TileZoom http://labs.webcodingstudio.com/tilegenerator/
It is doable but Tilemill is probably an overkill what you're looking for. Simple plugins like the ones mentioned by @thisguyzaphod could do the trick. If you're looking to use featureful state of the art tile zooming, I would go with Leaflet.js it can be specifically used for non-geographic content like this page documents:
You can probably find some other valuable pointers here: Is Leaflet a good tool for non-map images?
