Please don't misattribute the quote to me; I didn't say to use GIF.  
PostScript is practically completely open, and encapsulated PostScript is 
something of a standard for graphics import.  Everything can print to 
PostScript -- it's an ideal language for maps, since maps aren't images, 
they're graphics.
