Thanks Frank. Now I understand.
As luck would have it, the maps which are biggest (highest resolution
rasters) are also the ones with the smallest extents so they just miss
going over the step from base map to 50% overview.
These base maps are 1m/pixel and the final maps are just under 2.
I shall try experimenting with the extents (currently determined from
property boundaries) to see if I can push them over.
However, several other maps are seeing a significant improvement.
Cheers and thanks again,
