I'm currently working on some tools to allow
web-based creation of various
types of maps for people that aren't comfortable editing SVG files. These
tools will allow users to select a base map, choose which territories they
want to shade in and how to shade them, generate an SVG file, and then push
it to Commons. I have pretty much everything working except I would like to
be able to show the user a PNG preview of their map before it is pushed to
Commons. I tried using ImageMagick, but it gives horrible results. Has
anyone else dealt with this problem on the toolserver?
Wikimedia uses rsvg, so that would be your best choice -- that way
your PNG has a fairly good chance of actually looking the same as
Wikimedia's rasterization. rsvg is installed on nightshade, and since
it's installed on willow and wolfsbane I assume it's installed on all
the Solaris servers as well.
