** Such 'worldwide' bbox would make WW issue tons of tile-requests, most ending with nnnn_nnnn.jpg.txt-like entries in the cache. Your example layer will better fit into W=-76, E=-75, S=39, N=40 bounding box. Then WW will search for imagery only in the proper area and its closest neighborhood. Maybe, even, you should use the borders from the source image, e.g. W=-75.842 etc. Sqr 16:35, 11 Aug 2006 (UTC) ** Such 'worldwide' bbox would make WW issue tons of tile-requests, most ending with nnnn_nnnn.jpg.txt-like entries in the cache.

Things that need clarification

  • indexed images
  • terrain formats and how to add your terrain in WW after processing
  • should the bounding box in the xml be something other that (-180,90) (180,-90)?
