Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Environment: 1) .qgs project file was created with qgis 1.8 on Ubuntu 12.04

2) I also have qgis server running within the environment.

3) I currently have a .qgs project file loading .into my web browser, from various desktops.

Now my issue:

When my test2.qgs file loads into the browsers, the features of the map are a dot.

But I can box zoom into the map to a fairly large scale, need larger scale, but first things first.

??? What tag should I change in the test2.qgs project file to get an initial window reasonably zoomed into my map limits?

The MapCanvas Extent parameter for y seems reasonable.

I find no other Extent parameter in the .qgs project file.

What parameter might address this question?

Or is this a projection problem?
