feature request #4257
specimen map should zoom to area of distribution
specimen map should zoom to the area of the distribution or at least to the bbox which encloses the given occurrence points.
for the latter solution #1506 (bbox in point.php should be optional) needs to be fixed first. This is no longer required since the rest_gen.php script can be used:
http://edit.africamuseum.be/edit_wp5/v1.4_dev/rest_gen.php?l=earth&od=1:38.326,-0.822|38.328,-0.542|38.062,-0.893||2:38.062,-0.893|38.012,-1.883||3:40.78,-4.009|43.461,-5.412|38.062,-0.893&os=1:c/f78755/10/Onthophagus semipunctatus|2:s/64cb48/10/Euoniticellus pallipes|3:sq/cbde4f/10/Onthophagus joannae&ms=700&recalculate=true&legend=1
UPDATE Now that we are using the KML web service zooming to the bbox which encloses the given occurrence points it is fairly straight forward to implement, see #8972
For point layers from the edit map service this is working already, so the original requirement no longer accounts
