[mapserver-dev] WFS BBOX on point layers

I just checked the msQueryByRect() code and it doesn't seem to use tolerance. I think it should so this is a bug. The fix should be relatively simple: expand the search rect by the layers tolerance value and then proceed as normal. If you'd create a ticket and perhaps a test case I'd be happy to fix this ASAP in 5.6 and trunk...

Hi list,

when a very small BBOX filter is sent to Mapserver WFS, and the source layer is a point layer, it is very hard to actually select the point, normally no result is given.

Does Mapserver use TOLERANCE in this particular case? I can't seem to influence the situation by increasing TOLERANCE.

Using MS 5.4.
