Is there a possility for a good quality PDF export. SVG export and the conversion from SVG to PDF delivers very poor quality not suitable for printing. SVG it self delivers also a poor quality for printing. What can I do for good printing quality in a booklet.

Hi thanks for reporting,

There is already some support for PDF export in ShareMap, but it is currently not rolled out.

At current moment there are two options:

1) Use some desktop program to load SVG and Export PDF (preferably Inkscape [1])
2) Use ImageMagick graphical to do this from command line (here you can see sample conversion result [2])

We are using inkscape for converting SVG to PDF for printing in a guidebook with very good results.

Sultanstrail - thanks for reporting.

I have to agree that Inkscape is good piece of Open Source software.
