Could you please provide a function ZoomToLatLong(lat,long,zoom) which will zoom Map with center at given latlong pair by given zoom factor?
[springmeyer] thanks. We'll take a look in the next major release.
[mishok13] Ehm, but what do you understand by zoom here? AFAIK mapnik doesn't have any notion of zoom factors and only uses scales.
[springmeyer] yep, mapnik only does scales but I'm considering adding minimum generation of scales (and therefore you could slice to get zoom) in the future. pushing to future milestone...
