  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A number of different viewers can display content as directed by IIIF manifests, eg Mirador is one of the best known. (In addition to other re-uses for these metadata packages). Well worth a test-drive if anyone hasn't already seen it. Jheald (talk) 09:01, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Often many digital representations of a complex object will be available from different providers (e.g., two different national libraries for a work).

Further examples of possible property values:

1) for en:Woman with a Pearl Necklace

Wikimedia commons has its own-hi res image of this painting, so could publish its own manifest (proof of concept | in viewer), AND link to a manifest for this painting somewhere else (or many known manifests, each of which may give access to further and different annotation content for API consumers to have a look at).

2) for en:Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica

Wikimedia is unlikely or unable to publish a full digital representation of _Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica_. But it could link out to digital representations, such as https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/PR-ADV-B-00039-00001/1 (which has an IIIF Manifest that could be directly linked). This raises further questions though - the concept of Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica doesn't have a 1:1 relationship to digital representations; there could be many digital representations in IIIF space, and they have different sorts of relationship - for example, here's the manuscript: https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-ROYALSOCIETY-00069/7 --  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tom Crane (talk • contribs) at 09:52, 10 November 2018‎ (UTC).
