PDFMap is a command line tool and Python library which helps you create of high quality maps in PDF format. Objects of any type (either shapes or images) can be placed on a map and scaled and rotated to reflect their original dimensions and orientation. You can make each object clickable in Adobe Acrobat Reader (e.g., to access a Web-enabled application from which you've extracted the data used to create the map).
