IIIF Image API Validator

The IIIF Image API validator runs a set of tests against your implementation.

You must first download the test image (by clicking the button below) then save and import the test image into your repository, to be served through your IIIF Image service. Once the image is accessible through your IIIF service, you may then run the tests in the validator. Fill out server with the hostname of your server, prefix with everything in the URI path up to the identifier, and your identifier for the test image.

The test images may be freely reused under CC0.

  • Use it online with JSON based output, by an HTTP GET endpoints following this pattern:
