At the heart of every Deep Zoom Image file lies a tiled image pyramid that allows the rendering engine to pick and choose only the data that is required for a particular view. Each level is significantly smaller than the next, and is loaded as soon as it becomes available. The smooth Seadragon experience is created by progressively loading each new resolution level and seamlessly blending between them.
