Hi ,

Thanks for the info.

We have been using mapserver 4.4.1 as per the default ka-maps 
installation. I have just installed mapserver 4.6.1 and have tested our 
map data. Unfortunately the clipping problem still exists.

I have discovered that if I increase the metaBuffer to equal to the size 
of the tiles, the frequency of clipping is minimised.

I am using tile sizes of  w 256, h 256 and buffer of 256. What tile or 
buffer size configurations are you using ?
