comment OSM To Postgis & WGS84 Newbie confusion
check some coordinates in your nodes table - do they look like they are decimal degrees between +/- 180 / +/- 90? GeoServer may be projecting the data as it's rendered because of your layer configuration or WMS URL parameters

comment Why does Geoserver WMS not work in OpenLayers?
I don't know how you first put your example together, but if you didn't know GeoServer Admin can generate an OpenLayers example of any layer for you through the Layer Preview page (v2.1.3 and possibly earlier, I've only used one version). You can then take what you want from the preview's source. By default the preview will only contain one layer (can be a layer group) but by playing with the URL you can view multiple layers

Check the GeoServer logs to see if there is an error parsing your filter

How about Java - GeoServer is very capable and entirely contained in a single .war

comment Cleaning up OpenStreetMap data, building polygons and trying to improve appearance
I have already worked through a lot of post-processing on the OSM XML data, but I prefer to use FME where possible as so much development effort has already gone into this tool and it's (almost) always preferable to writing your own process. It's not free software, but if you spend a lot of time writing your own processes for different datasets you will quickly burn more $ in time than the cost of purchase

this question is quite old - does it still need answering?

comment IFeature.set_Shape The coordinates or measures are out of bounds
perhaps this is already mentioned in your question, but it is a little confusing to read - what told you that the initial extent had the values you wrote at the top of the question? None of these values are valid with the 4326 CRS. The longitude values extend beyond +/- 180 and latitude goes way beyond +/- 90. If these are the bounds of your source data it seems like the problem starts there

I just went to your site, clicked a feature, and got a GetFeatureInfo response from gisnexus.com - what's the problem?

comment Dynamically adding WFS layer features with Geoserver
note that some WFS clients (e.g. ArcMap with the Data Interoperability extension) might cache WFS data and this will almost certainly be out of your control

comment How is EPSG:4326 data 'projected' in a 2D map?
@whuber I see the coordinate readout but it doesn't really help - without imposing the latitude and longitude lines over the display the numbers only give me a vague notion of how positions are mapped to the image, and don't directly explain why northern or southern cities tend to the centre

comment How is EPSG:4326 data 'projected' in a 2D map?
sorry I should have been more specific in my question: I wasn't asking it 4326 was a projection, but rather if the map I was looking at was using a projection to display 4326 data. I know that this particular map is not using spherical mercator as I am used to seeing Reykjavik without the visual skew
