Lost in time: we developed a rough sort of digital slide since 1993, for taking pictures of larger-than-a-field structures (like breast ducts, to be processed for morphometry) or complete specimens, though at a low-power magnification (e.g., transplanted hearts blocks, to examine tissue fractions). The software was developed on a Kontron IBAS2000 system. I Also developed a generic tool aimed at doing linear measures on specimens, which included a matrix-based acquisition of low power images, mainly used to calculate the depth of melanomas. The source code of MEASTOOL (the only one I was able to quickly retrieve from old supports) is here, for the software archeologist.

From the above paper, the following citation:

(...) The images were acquired with a color video camera connected to a motorized microscope and automatically pasted to form a single image of the duct.
