MAX SCALE Denominator in ERDAS Apollo 2018 Update 4

Hi all,

 

as a default, Apollo sets the MAX SCALE Denominator to Double (E-308). We want to access the provided WMS from another software that cannot handle such large numbers, so it would make sense to insert a smaller value for the mximum scale. Is it sufficient to do this in the provider.faq file or do we need to consider further settings?

Hi Martin,

 

Which WMS are you using?

ApolloCatalogWMS, EAIM, or another legacy service?

Maybe check the web.config of ApolloCatalogWMS (see common files in program files, then instances, etc.)

If you change the parameter (if there is any) in the providers.fac, it will apply to EAIM (service for cataged raster) but not sure the max scale denominator is taken immediately from there or if is is rebuilt.

Hi Flo,

 

thanks a lot! And for legacy services, is it sufficient to use the provider.fac or do they need additional settings?

 

Best regards,

Martin

Right, with legacy services, editing the providers.fac is enough.

Thanks a lot! Sorry for bothering you again, but would it be possible to provide an example of how and where to set these values exactly? From the help, it is not quite clear to us and our customer has an application that cannot handle the default value, so we need to adapt it to meaningful values.

 

Best regards,

Martin
