I'm trying to make MBTiles using Tile Mill. The data source is a geotiff exported from ArcMap Desktop 10.5 from a map document in the Web Mercator WGS84 Coordinate Reference system. Tile Mill keeps giving me the following:

Detected out of bounds geographic extent (-180,7409548.0421638,-462071.4434831566,85.051) for layer 'untitled'. Please ensure that the SRS for this layer is correct. Its native extent is '-467352.53737867775,7409548.0421638,-462071.4434831566,7413358.049783817'

GDALinfo gives: Size is 3119, 2250

  • I don't understand the error message. Why does it give a geographic extent with -180 and 85.051 plus two coords that match the latitude of the northern and southern edges of the geotiff? What does this mean? And what am I supposed to do about it? Is there something wrong with TileMill? – GeoSam Oct 5 '17 at 10:07
