Subject: [Webmap-discuss] static map with KML/GML overlay on WMS

For a botanical collection management system (atrium.andesamazon.org) I
am looking for a quick sollution to overlay a KML or GML layer on a WMS
background to create a static map image. The idea would be to write a
PHP script that takes a URL for a WMS and a URL for a KML file
(dynamically created to macht the data requested by the user), overlays
the KML on the WMS layer and returns the resulting map as a JPG/PNG
file. I am aware of OpenLayer and other sollutions that can creat
dynamic maps from different sources but I specifically need a static map
that can be printed in a report. This is similar to Google Static Maps
only that it would show a WMS layer with a KML overlay.
I am not sure if what I have in mind is easily doeable or if I will need
to decide on a specific WMS software and program a sollution on top of
that (such as Mapserver with MapScript). Any suggestions are wellcome.
