[mapguide-users] open a new map on same view

AFAIK, there are no parameters that enables a custom initial map extent.

So, you have two options:
1) Add code in the mapviewer.(aspx/php/jsp) files to handle this
2) Use a seperate pre-processing page to create a copy of the WebLayout 
(or Fusion app),
set the new center, save as temp, and load the customized temp WebLayout.

Method (1) will require adjustments on each MapGuide upgrade, so I 
recommend (2).
An example of this can be seen here:

If you are not using the MaestroAPI, you can manually modify the 
WebLayout xml, using the
GetResource and SetResource API calls.
