mkhexgrid is a small command-line program which generates hexagonal grids of the sort used for strategy games. Hex grids can be created as PNG or SVG images, and as PostScript. Virtually every aspect of the output can be be adjusted—from grid line thickness and color, to style and size of hex centers, to the style and position of hex coordinates. mkhexgrid makes it simple to create whatever hex grid you need.
mkhexgrid is free, open-source software, written by Joel Uckelman, and is made available under the GPL. mkhexgrid is written in C++ and should run on most platforms in use today.
Linked here is sample output from mkhexgrid, along with the spec files which produced that output.
