[OSM-dev] Printing to PDF

Dear all,

what's the best way to print to PDF?

I'd like to print a 30km by 20km area to a single A1 or A2 sheet. This is a
"sparse" area in Zambia, so downloading OSM data and rendering is quite
possible, rather than attempting to print tiles.

I did have a look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_on_Paper, but
it's tricky to see what's current, and what works well. I guess it's
possible to use QGIS as well, but ideally a stand-alone version of
something like his would work for me:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/MapPDF.

Also, I couldn't really get PDF out of JOSM - would be very nice to improve
that.

Any thoughts on options?

Thanks!
Bjoern
