[mapserver-users] Projection or Data Problem?

If I get what you are saying, I should set up another Mapserver as a WMS
server that accesses the WMS from BLM, then, connect to my WMS server with
the original mapfile?

Doesn¹t Mapserver already take the temporary image from the WMS that was
delivered in epsg:4326 and reproject it to my mapfiles projection,
epsg:2266, then add the other layers of my mapfile before delivering the
final image?

This certainly works for the other WMS layer, OFlood Data Availability¹ that
is in my mapfile.  That layer is delivered by the WMS in epsg:4269 and lines
up perfect when the mapfile¹s main projection is set to ³init=epsg:2266².

Thanks for helping,
