I'm trying to do a simple MapGuide OS + Fusion overlaying Google Maps and I can't figure out why the coordinate system are off. I downloaded populated places from natural earth.
After Googling, it says that Google Maps uses WGS84 and natural earth is WGS84. Here's what I did:
I create a map definition from the natural earth data. Then I created a Flexible Layout with that map definition to view it with fusion. I checked the coordinate system of the map. It says "GCS_WGS_1984"
When I display the map, it is incorrect. (The points are way to small and do not correctly align)
How do I go about trouble shooting this? I'm brand new to GIS and I think it has to do with the coordinate systems, but as far as I can tell they should match.
