Does anyone have experience in creating reports from your ArcGIS data (geodatabase, map exports) using a python reporting engine? In my current project, we are using Jasper Reports in the following way: A custom geoprocessing tool creates a intermediate XML file containing the data from the Oracle SDE and an exported map image as encoded byte array. This file and a template from iReport is used to generate a PDF file by Jasper Reports.
I am looking for a different solution using a report engine based on python (Jasper is based on Java), I can imagine that a python approach can be better integrated in ArcGIS.
Did anyone tried this before?
