Hi George,

I have the TilingEngine by default grab 1 or 2 extra rows and columns
outside the perimeter of the defined map extents.  This is incase the
browser/screen resolution is sized in such a way upon initial map load to
include any outside area.

I will give you an update tomorrow on specifics and how to possibly minimize

Subject: [mapguide-users] Tiling engine question

I am using the Websoft Developers tiling engine to create tiles that may 
be used outside of mapguide. I noticed that there are many blank tiles 
created that appear outside of the border of my map. I have seen this 
running a php script I wrote to create tiles as well. I am trying to 
understand how the tiling function in mapguide determines where the edge 
of the map is. Is it somehow related to the Initial View settings in the 
Map Definition in Studio? Is related to the farthest zoom scale? I am 
trying to minimize the number of blank tiles created. Any suggestions?
