[Cartoweb-users] How to set extent properly

thanks very much Alexandre,

Can you tell me if it is possible to do a translation using ISO-8859-2.
I am using this encoding on my web site but as I can see only ISO-8859-1
is supported. Beside, I have problems in translating regarding po2mo.php
as it can't deal with my "C:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache\htdocs\cartoweb3..." path. I have tried to do msgcat
manually but it seems my input files are not in the same encoding ( I
have created server-myproject.hr.po, server-myproject.mymapfile.hr.po
and client-myproject.hr.po, I have done a translation of
client-myproject.hr.po with poedit and I think it is saved in utf8).
Then I have done something like:

msgcat --use-first --output=myproject.mymapfile.hr.po "C:\Program
Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\cartoweb3\po\server-myproject.hr.po"
"C:\Program Files\Apache
msgcat --use-first --output=myproject.mymapfile.hr.po "C:\Program
Group\Apache2\htdocs\cartoweb3\po\myproject.mymapfile.hr.po" "C:\Program
Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\cartoweb3\po\client-myproject.hr.po"

but I got error that input files are in different encodings...

any suggestions?

thanks, dejan

Yes, that was the idea. If the result is still not good enough, that's 
probably due to some rounding errors somewhere. I would recommend to 
take an extent that's 2-3% bigger than the largest object in both 
dimensions, so that the bbox containing the object fits comfortably 
within it (that's what I too cryptically meant by speaking of a margin)
