generate bitmaps images, such as geographic maps with data contours
and political boundaries drawn on top? I have a bunch of scientific
data (satellite derived AVHRR data to be precise) that I will be
importing into a MySQL database and would like to create a web
interface that allows the user to query the database and view the
results as data plotted out on a map. I probably will need to do
other sorts of scientific plotting as well.
Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks!

Re: how to generate bitmaps, contour maps and so on
I'd probably opt for the full-fledged solution: OpenLayers as the front-end,
Mapnik as the rendering engine, apache2+mod_tile for quick image serving &
caching, spatial-enabled MySQL as the back-end.
<disclaimer>I collaborate on OpenStreetMap, and that's the kind of
infrastructure the project uses.</disclaimer>
I suggest you to research a bit on those topics.
