GDAL/OGR docs in PDF

NOTE: all GDAL/OGR user docs also available as one  PDF and as a single  HTML-page from GIS-Lab (russian GIS community).


When you create a new page please use the subwiki syntax UserDocs/ANewWikiPage so it will be properly nested in the TitleIndex and easy to seperate from the developer and trac system pages. If you don't like UserDocs being prefixed in front, use the bracket syntax of [UserDocs/EasyToReadName Easy to read name], which will be displayed as Easy to read name
