New interface introduction – Astronomical Image Overlay

The SKY-MAP team is happy to introduce new interface we are working on right now called Astronomical Image Overlay. It allows (by adding single line of code to a page that show one or more astronomical images) to add new cool layer of other images overlapping same patch of the sky (drag mouse over the image below and you will notice the line of other images that you can zoom by moving mouse over):

If you want to add this interface to your page, simply add this line of code at the end of your html file, before </body> tag:

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://sky-map.org/js/astroOverlay'></script>

Moreover, you can simply add this interface right in your browser to any page you are visiting by simply putting following code in browser’s location (URL) following by <Enter>:

javascript:a=document.createElement('script');a.src='http://sky-map.org/js/astroOverlay';a.onload=function(){astroOverlay()};document.body.appendChild(a);void+0

or put that line in your browser’s bookmarks toolbar, and by clicking on it current page you are visiting will be enriched with the AstroOverlay interface (currently doesn’t work in Internet Explorer). The interface is new and we are still working on fixing bugs and user experience improvements. Feel free to give it a try and let us know what’s your experience with this new feature.
