This may exist already but I couldnt find anything similar.

I would like to utilize this product to correctly position the device status icons for a monitoring system we are working with, specifically Nagios with NagVis.

I would like to be able to have this software generate a map of, lets say Florida to a best fit of maybe 1280x1024 map image size output as a png or jpg . Then I would like it to take a delimited list of addresses and instead of creating an icon on the map (which is what every example I have seen has) I would like it to export a list of the x/y pixel co-ordinates for the generated image.

NagVis works by taking a background image and mapping the dynamic status icons to a pixel co-ordinate. I would like to try and have the icons mapped in the correct location as close to automatically as I can get. If I could get it to export the pixel x/y locations I can create a script to make the "mapping" within the NagVis app and minimize user error.

Thanks Ken
