Rob, Where are the specifications for the OGIS server?
Yes, that is a goal we should be working towards...
I'd like to at least read up on it and see what kind
of problems we can identify.
Maybe Doug Nebert, or someone else on the list can
give some feedback about the getting mapserver working
in with the OGIS Web Mapping testbed apps.
On the issue about aspect ratio, most a map server
software will adjust to best fit and meet the input bb
args. I make the assumption that the algorithms for
adjusting the aspect ratio will vary. Is there is a
published specification for doing that?
