> I was told some of you might be interested :
> I'm pleased to announce the first public release of PDFMap, a command line
> tool and Python library to help people create high quality maps in PDF
> format with clickable objects on them. It was made to create
> archaeological maps for some caves but you can do other things as well :
> look at the example to learn more.
> Each object is placed on the map at its correct dimensions (you can also
> apply a magnifying factor if you want), and orientation.
> This software is licensed under the GNU GPL and intensively uses the
> ReportLab package (version 1.11 or higher).
> You can download it from :
> The CVS tree is now available too.
> The public area available directly from
> still needs a lot of work, but contains an example of a pdf map and a
> screenshot, as well as the scripts which created this map.
> In the tests/ subdirectory, two sample scripts are present, the first in
> Python, the second in Bourne Again Shell language, but both produce
> exactly the same map. The sample dataset and configuration files are in
> the tests/ directory too, so you can easily see if their format can match
> your own datas and skills ;-) easily (this is probably the case).
> The sample dataset and raster map was generously given to this project by
> Intevation GmbH (http://www.intevation.de)
> After having extracted the tarball, please read the README and
> tests/README to learn how to use this software and produce your
> own maps.

> Any comment or help is appreciated.
