Hi all,

Message from Drazen

As I am at full tilt, I will not have time to follow it, it was just to
inform about one small I face yesterday,

And that perhaps for the user it will be interesting to all in 4326.


"it's not UTM projection... but data ree projected to the
http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/3785/

I guess that there needs to be a discussion about what to do, as this seems
to
be a problem only for arcgis. I don't know what were the reasons to
reproject
the in the first place, at the time hot-export service was designed.

Dra┼żen"


All the best Fred
