Ticket #1256 (closed defect: fixed)
LABELFORMAT of the GRID Object no longer accepts a value of 'DD'
|Reported by:||kenlord@…||Owned by:||sdlime|
|Component:||MapServer C Library||Version:||4.4|
The LABELFORMAT item of the GRID Object is documented to accept the following values: DDMM = label the grid using degrees and minutes DDMMSS = label the grid using degrees, minutes, and seconds default = label the grid using a decimal value in the units of the projection used. Mapserver 4.2 used to accept another undocumented value: DD = label the grid using degrees (no decimal, no minutes, just the whole number of degrees) Mapserver 4.4 no longer accepts this undocumented value, and crashes with an error message. It would be very useful to be able to use the DD value again. It gave a nice clean labelling of the grid lines without cluttering it all up with unwanted decimals, minutes, or seconds. Why force me to label a grid line as "145.00" or "145 00" when the old system allowed me to place a nice clean "145" that didnt waste space on the map? Thank you, Ken Lord Vancouver BC
