      // Maps always need a projection, but Zoomify layers are not geo-referenced, and
      // are only measured in pixels.  So, we create a fake projection that the map
      // can use to properly display the layer.
      var proj = new ol.proj.Projection({
        code: 'ZOOMIFY',
        units: 'pixels',
        extent: [0, 0, imgWidth, imgHeight]

      var source = new ol.source.Zoomify({
        url: url,
        size: [imgWidth, imgHeight],
        crossOrigin: crossOrigin

      var map = new ol.Map({
        layers: [
          new ol.layer.Tile({
            source: source
