[osg-users] Image Resolution in VPB

Hi Matins,

Slight variations of the pixel colour may come about due to GDAL
interpolating data, interpolation done with VPB, or the edge boundary
equalization.  The small variation you are seeing might simply be down to
this, it's not something at this stage I'd even flag up as a problem.  It
certainly doesn't looked to be the corner equalization bug, as this just
effects the corners.

BTW, the way is there a reason for the image being pixelated?  VPB typically
generates databases that use linear texture filtering.
