Hi to all,

I have tried as map.fitWorld().zoomIn(), But it shows some extra location(area) like as image2.alt text

Also tried as noWrap:true , It shows single map correclty, But the alignment not good in min zoom levels, refer image3 alt text

In web Mercator projection the world is square, sorry.....

or put different: either you need a different monitor, or you will have to use a custom projection (which will likely not work very well).

@SimonPoole : Thanks for your suggestion. What about tileSize property? I increased tile size 256 to 300. But some part of map not shown.(screenshot added above)

Both the projected globe and the tiles are square (-> w:h=1) in standard web Mercator projection. Most screens and therefore windows shown on them are rectangular, typically with a width to height ratio between 4:3 and 16:9. To fit the world seemlessly in to such a window you either need to distort the tiles horizontally or use a projection that fits better.
