Ticket #1614 (closed feature: fixed)
GeoRSS, States Misplaced
|Reported by:||tcoulter||Owned by:|
David Winslow at TOPP stumbled across this one while doing some GeoRSS Geoserver work. It seems that, in the edited georss example below, states show up misplaced. To show off this bug, he's created an example where Arkansas appears in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!. He also provides a link to Google Maps using the same data set (just Arkansas), where it shows up in the correct place.
See the following link for a better representation of the problem: http://geo.openplans.org/~dwinslow/arkanwhere.png
David's GeoRSS data set is here: http://geo.openplans.org/~dwinslow/arkansas.rss
And his map configuration/example is here: http://geo.openplans.org/~dwinslow/georss-markers.html
And here's Google Maps as an oracle:
Looks like there's an OL bug in there somewhere.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you look at David's georss-example, it seems that the bug is variable. Sometimes Arkansas shows up in the correct spot, sometimes it doesn't. It's not completely obvious as to why. Refresh the page a bit if Arkansas does not seem misplaced.
I've CC'd David on this ticket. Please refer questions to him.
