Southern Hemisphere misaligned #4
Major Bug: The view and the data are offset from each other in the main map view for the Southern Hemisphere.
At max zoom, the view seems to be shifted about 70Km West from the data in the southern hemisphere. For the Basemaps of "Esri world Imagery" and "Esri Ocean Basemap" the problem is more visible since the basemap is in the correct location but the data and the Bathymetry maps are shifted. for the "ETOPO1 Topography" Basemap the problem is harder to see since the basemap is shifted the same amount as the layers on top.
The problem only exists in the global view map projection (the pole projections are fine)
Proving that the data is shifted from the view can be done using the "line" drawing tool.
In the above image the red rectangle shows where the map was displaying the land but the green rectangle shows where the land was accorading to the data. link
Problem first noticed in Verson: 2ae745d
According to Geoff this is likely a result of the script that was used to create the topographic Maps. The script was run slightly differently on each zoom level. There was probably a mistake for the max zoom level. He suggested using the same script that was used to creat the maps of the poles. This is a python script that can be found on Trinity in /home/gholden/src/regrid/regrid_script_webmerc.py OR /home/gholden/src/regrid/view regrid_script_3031.py
This running the script with the correct files and fixing any errors in the script should generate a proper topographical file which can to used to completely fix this problem. This is because the bathymetry and the mask for the heat map are both generated from the same file.
