Description

The geospatial pdf format in gdal allows dynamic pdf's to be generated that allow layers to be turned on or off in the pdf. This would be an excellent bit of functionality for QGIS to gain, ideally via the composer. Imagine a map bring produced with a legend that has layers that can be turned on and off directly in a pdf viewer.

Even more important to me than layer toggle options would be having spatial reference data included in the PDF so it can be used with Avenza PDFmaps app or other geospatial pdf readers.
