C5.67 Map generation web-services enhanced for publication ready maps

Based on the M5.28 report (Report on Guidelines to produce publication ready maps), identifying the requirements for the service in terms of quality map printing, features for enhancing the MapViewer tool for publication-ready maps have been studied and implemented.

It should be noted that this implementation work is still ongoing, in close coordination with the map services API development and documentation (see C5.68 report).

Also, the MapViewer Tool is currently being converted to use ImageMagick as a background image conversion toolset, rather than the GD library that was in use until now. This was decided upon largely as a result of the M5.28 report requirements, as ImageMagick will provide more flexibility and support for more different formats.
