Griot is an open-source iPad application that facilitates engagement with a collection of objects (artifacts, artwork, graphs, or anything else that can be represented visually) through annotations (points of interest on the object itself) and stories (related text-based and multimedia content, presented as a series of pages).
The Griot framework requires three components:
- The Griot software itself (this);
- A server for creating and serving tiled images (tilesaw); and
- An interface for loading content and bundling it in JSON format (GriotWP).
