My customer has requested the ability to generate pdf maps based on what is visible in the browser window. For a given site and collection of features 3 or 4 different pdf maps will be available that answer different questions about the site.
I have found that I can use the REST API to export an image from a Map Service. My problem is that it appears that a Map Service is static after it has been published. This would be a great answer if I could dynamically create a Map Service.
I have found PrintTemplates, but this technology didn't appear to be what I needed.
