Hi guys,

I don't know whether this is a stupid question or what but I really need some advice, opinions, or whatever since I am stuck with this problem for so many days already.

Anyway what I am trying to do is to create map images that I can use to implement my application like Google Maps.  I know that within Mapserver there is ka-map but as stupid as I am, I would like to create my own.  The details of ka-map and the lack of documentation making ka-map a bit confusing to me.

I need to make tiles for all map images that I generated from .map file.  The problem I have is that I don't know how to generate images for zooming in and out the map.  I've tried changing and using EXTEND variable but EXTEND only displayed a certain area of the map and not the entire data.  So basically if the user drag the map they will only see data on that extend and not the entire map.  How can I solve this problem?  I tried using and changing the SCALE value but nothing changed?  I tried to changed the SIZE also nothing changed except the pixel size of the map.

So anybody out there that can help me with the best approach?  I need to generate the image and then cut it to tiles.  I think I have a solution on how to cut the image but producing the image is now the problem.  I hope you guys get the picture.
