I have a scalebar problem too. In my case I can draw polygons and lines
on the screen which do not even come close to the scalebar depending
where in Australia I am. I know my drawing tools and the distance
measurement toos are accurate but the mapserver scalebar is not.
Looking into the code I discover that the scalebar is only calculated on
the equator when using geographics. This might be related to what you
are seeing depending where on the planet you are. The other problem is
related to the project being used and the area. Since you are dealing
in millimeters it could be a real problem.
I have thought replacing the mapserver created scalebar with a
and try to make it more accurate.
Any suggestions anyone
