Web-service is an API that uses local data to render 3D brain model within an embedded 3D viewer into any webpage with one request call. It's fairly customizable through a callback function.
Please note the Surface Viewer Web Service is still in its early stages of development. Performance is not guaranteed and the API may change rapidly.
