PDFMap is a command line tool and Python library which eases the creation of very high quality maps in PDF format. You can place objects on the maps. Each object can be represented by either a shape or an image, and is scaled and rotated to reflect its original dimensions and orientation. You can make each object clickable in Adobe Acrobat Reader (e.g., to access a Web-enabled application from which you've extracted the data used to create the map).

Release Notes: The code was reorganized to feature both a command line tool and a Python library, and both are now installed correctly. The API documentation was regenerated to reflect these changes. PDFMap doesn't produce a warning anymore when run with recent versions of Python.
Release Notes: Transparent and Web-based image support (absolutely needs ReportLab's CVS version), ability to use arbitrary page sizes and specify them in centimeters (default), inches, or points, and some small bugfixes.
Release Notes: The program now works as a CGI script, allowing you to use PDFMap as a simple map server. Image shapes can be downloaded at runtime. Margins can be set in centimeters (default), inches, or points.
