[Mapbender-users] Tolerance of GetFeatureInfo-Requests

Hi Thilo,

i think there is no way for mapbender to affect the tolerance of the
getfeatureinfo request on the server side. Simply because the getFI
request has no appropriate directive.

A workaround could be to use the useMap approach. You only can display
a single field, but at least the onmouseover tolerance is configurable
and the user gets visual feedback. However, this would mean that you
have to provide this layer also as a wfs .

Cheers, Michael
