Overview

MapGuide already has a flexible rendering architecture in place to allow for custom renderers to be built to render maps out to an assortment of output formats (PNG, JPG, GIF, DWF, KML). Adding a Cairo rendering backend will give MapGuide the ability to natively render maps to SVG and PDF, two output formats which are highly desired among the MapGuide user community, and currently require web-tier level solutions (eg. Scribble) to address this shortcoming, with varying levels of success.
