WTF is up with the slowness of PDF drawing maps? I worked on a GIS that did similar line drawing of maps back in like 1993 or so, we were on like 486-DX-33 machines or something like that and we drew big maps in near real time. PDF/Acroread drawing multi-layered maps you can actually see it refreshing each layer of the map one by one. It would be sort of a sweet retro feeling, reminding me of the old 7 MHz Amiga I used to love, except for the fact that it's so unfreaking-believably annoying!!!
