Developer in scientific fields.

  • My world is vertical market shrinkwrap. Do you know your world?
  • VB6, VB.NET, C, Fortran, Perl, PHP...
  • User interfaces, graphics, data manipulation, numerical models.
  • Database stuff with Access/MySQL/SQL Server.
  • Physics degree, little formal training in development

In my young days I used to write things like compilers and chess programs for fun - but that was last millenium :)

+1 because I suspect this is exactly what I will do. I've done it before when I wanted to get images from a WMS.

+1 for lateral thinking alone! To be sure I've understood: you would create a webpage displaying some map layers using a JavaScript client (e.g. OpenLayers), and then render it to PDF with wkhtml?

Thanks, I had not heard of Geomajas, that's interesting. Although I notice they charge for the business-friendly licences and the printing module uses iText which again means you must pay to be released from the AGPL

@sbaskin89 We are developing our own JavaScript client rather than using ncWMS. I should have really have specified that in the question in the first place, I will edit it in. AlivePDF looks interesting for Flex users though. Thanks very much for the input!
