Can anyone suggest a quick (and preferably open source) way to create an image from a shapefile. For example, I have a shapefile containing parcel boundaries, I want to create a png file depicting these parcels. The symbology required for this image will be bare-bones (solid outline and fill).
I know that shp2img from MapServer would do the trick. I am just curious if there is anything else available.
Any references to pre-compiled tools or api's/sdks welcome.
