comment Problems with NA values when reading .DEM file with R 'raster' package in Windows
This fix is better than mine because the data points in the caspian sea are also converted (these points are also negative). Nice!

Note that mapguide open source has a LGPL license and that there is also a closed version: Audodesk Infrastructure Map Server

comment Algorithm to fix topological errors in GIS software apps
Your own link from Geo Wizards actually represents the algorithms fairly well. What more do you expect?

comment Looking for open source component to create PDF from WMS in a web application
Markj: I also think mapserver is the best option. For the external wms clients you have to add maplayers, but the rest of your mapfile can stay identical. Setting the scale/extent can be done through mapscript.

If you consider this option, you could also look to libharu (in C) or older versions of iText (java)(newer have a AGPL license which will not fit your purpose).

comment Efficiency of python script using SAGA and arcpy
Still no access to python here, can you try return Parms('POINTS').asPointCloud() instead of return pSpc ? I hope this works (in C++ both work, my python knowledge is the limiting factor here).

google sys.arg, first hit: docs.python.org/library/sys.html ; you run it from the command line, but of course you could also specify the filenames any other way.

different workaround: convert your file using gdal_translate (from 1.8) to eg geotiff. This may load correctly

Updating rgdal is not obvious, and will require recompilation of rgdal. More info here.
