I am trying to use attach a Bing map, but I get an error for the GCS I have attach?
"Bing Maps" gets listed in the raster Manager but in RED.
And I get the following...
The coordinates are outside the valid range of the GCSwww.bing.com/maps/aerialEPSG:900913 --> NewBrunswickCSRS Error: Reprojection operation performed on coordinates outside of mathematical domain of coordinate system.
I know my GCS is the correct one for my region...so why doesn't work? My Bing key is defined.
AECOsim V8i SS6 (08.11.09.863)
Can you send your DGN? Also make sure your view is looking at a valid spot in NB. Check that exporting geometry to Google Earth shows the features in the right spot.
Thanks for the reply. I tried to attach the DGN but it gives me an error when uploading it...here is a link to it below.
It exports to Google Earth correctly.

It seems this is an issue with V8i and there also seems to be no work around solution. It has been tested in the CONNECT Edition and works correctly. For this GCS the answer is to upgrade to the CONNECT Edition products.
I am having the same issue but with the 'British Ordnance Survey GRS80 Grid (GRS80)' If I replace with BritishNatGrid then the raster attaches and displays.
Something up with the GRS80??
Strangely though I am able to attache as a background map, just not through Raster Manager.
I am currently using Connect U9.1, but have the same issue on U7,8 & 9
I guess that, if you are using the “British Ordnance Survey”, it is because you want to work on a region like“United Kingdom” island or France. As you can see on the screen capture below, it does work to attach a “Bing Maps” with Raster Manager in MicroStation CONNECT U10.
What you have to know, any projected coordinate system has a valid domain. This is a limited area where the coordinates are in a valid range of precision. Raster Manager only displays the raster portion inside this domain while the new background map displays the entire globe. The projection calculation outside the valid domain may give very bad result. For example, you cannot measure a distance outside that area.
Therefore, if you are trying to look at an area outside the domain, you will never see it while using Raster Manager. But it probably means that you are not using the right coordinate system.
