Same here, we seem to have MAXSIZE at 5000 for high resolution printing. 4096 would be a better default. If people in 2003 were gathering data from WMS with large requests now they are collecting tiles.

Any reason not to do this? The reason the setting exists is rather obvious. I checked many of my mapfiles and indeed I bump the value to 4096. Not for printing but for generating metatiles. I think that's a stronger argument... --Steve

Currently the maximum image size default is set to 2048 pixels. With increasingly large monitors and higher resolutions I keep hitting this limit when maximising browser windows, and getting an error message.

It is confusing to new users, and requires having to always add a MAXSIZE 4096 line to each new map file.

I'd propose increasing the default to 4096. Users concerned about increased stress on their servers are more likely to know how to change this setting, than new users getting an error.

I believe it should be a case of simply increasing the following?



It was last updated in 2003 - so hopefully most hardware has been updated since then..
