[Mapserver-users] Negative Tolerance?

Thanks for the reply. I negative tolerance is indeed abstract when applied
to a point.
What I want to do is provide an intersect function; I'm thinking polygons.
For example, a user has selected a parcel feature and wants to select all
the survey features that lie below it. With a tolerance of 0, all the
surveys that only share an edge with the parcel are selected. I want to use
a small negative tolerance so that only those surveys that actually lie
below it are selected.
So far, a negative tolerance is treated as zero. Is there another way to do

What are you trying to accomplish?
I don't believe that it would be appropriate or possible to use a negative
TOLERANCE value, as it defines the radius (in pixels) around a point. I
can't picture a circle with a negative radius.

Is it possible to use a negative number for a layer's TOLERANCE value?
can't seem to make it work.
