Do you know if there is a small library (preferably in python or java) around that allows the creation of static maps? Something where you can specific the URL of your TMS server, width and height in pixel, and a simple geometry (point or linestring) to be drawn on top?
Do you know any other projects in python / java that are available. Otherwise I will consider creating a clone of staticmaplite in python. But it would be better to build on something already available.
