GDAL/OGR does not (practically) do conversion of S-57 feature data to raster
(picture) format.  It just provides access to the feature data - the ability
to read it into in memory data structures which an application could then
render in some particular fashion.

Some folks have done this with varying levels of adequacy using MapServer.


It is also included in FWTools.
