Supplementary data:


The GEOMAR Helmhotz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel is operating a Media Asset Management System (MAMS) which manages large amounts image- and video data. Similar systems are operated by the Helmholtz Centre HEREON and by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI). Although the MAMS system provides access to data and metadata using an API, it is not possible to directly request image data without prior knowledge of the internal MAMS data structure. The image broker is a web service which brokers between a client (e.g. web-browser) and the MAMS. It allows users to request images by metadata values (e.g. image uuid). The broker uses the [IIIF]( standard which allows users to request the images in different formats, scaled copies or only specific parts of the image.
