Zoom anomaly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've used the Bing Map API to create a map viewer. It works great except for an anomaly when I zoom in on a web map service from NOOA. It's their weather wms and when I bring in any tropical storm tracking it draws fine initially. When I zoom in the cached overlay does not line up properly. When I zoom in closer the anomaly goes away. This only happnes in productioin. It does not happen in development or staging. Kind of new to this.

    Any ideas? Is this a Bing Map API issue or a NOOA issue or something else altogether?

    Thanks for any help.

  • Never heard of this issue from the Bing Maps side of things. Do you have a URL were we can test this out?

  • I don't quite understand how modifying proxy.config can be the solution, given the problem description... how does that affect an overlay lining up correctly or not?

  • Hi Richard,

      Thanks for responding. Actually, I can give you the URL but you wouldn't be able to access the site. It is a secure site and I would have to give you my username and pasword which I cannot do, unfortunately. But we do have a bead on it and I want to pass it along to you and whomever runs into the same issue for future reference even though it's not a Bing issue. And yes, you were right it doesn't appear to be on the Bing side of things. We think the fix required is modifying the client access policy.xml and / or our proxy.config files to include the URL. If this clears the problem I'll post it here.

    Thanks again.
