setting so Pacific ocean is always visible
« on: January 23, 2010, 10:55:55 AM »
Good Morning, the problem I had with my last map was when one was standing next to the pacific ocean if one zoomed out several times the ocean would disappear. I was making my map base today with the dictionary and I can not see the water until level 0 any way I can make it visible at the last level?
Thanks-Marc

Hmm, The ocean and main inland water bodies where added to the borders as part of my base.
So I have:[POLYGON]
Type=0x28 [b]Change to 1x28[/b]
Label=Puget Sound
Data0=(48.12810,-122.74733),(48.14629,-122.74763),(48.14608,-122.75128),(48.14634,-122.75128),(48.14711,-122.75038),(48.14900,-122.74767),(48.15071,-122.74492),(48.15209,-122.74235),(48.15372,-122.73956),(48.15458,-122.73784),(48.15518,-122.73668),(48.15565,-122.73544),(48.15569,-122.73531),(48.15505,-122.73416),(48.15252,-122.73004),(48.15011,-122.72621),(48.14943,-122.72523),(48.14844,-122.72386),(48.14728,-122.72235),(48.14531,-122.71982),(48.14479,-122.71909),(48.14389,-122.71776),(48.14222,-122.71549),(48.14153,-122.71454)

Not sure which approach you are taking; if you are not using the dictionary header method as mentioned, then you need a 'Levels=  ' statement for each feature - otherwise the 'Data0=' is saying to display the feature at the bit-level defined by 'level0=  ' and more detailed zoomed levels.

Ok, I see 2 possibles, but it appears possibly editing the dictionary is best. If this is the current dictionary:

Thanks, I must be thick. Changing the dictionary did nothing but adding EndLevel=3 to each water body does work.
Cheers-Marc
