The NYU Virtual Microscope uses the Google Maps API
to display, annotate, and navigate over 1,300 digital histology and pathology slides. This system was created by the NYU School of Medicine Institute for Innovations in Medical Education.
A detailed description of the system and its impact is available at BMC medical education: Enhanced virtual microscopy for collaborative education.
Primarily designed for students at NYU School of Medicine, the NYUVM now also allows anyone to create an account and log in. Read more about our efforts to collaborate with other medical schools around virtual microscopy here.
