A couple of years ago I needed to script the generation of disk layout
diagrams and after looking at a few formats I settled on 'fig' (ie xfig)

ghostscript could get you to a raster format.
fig to postscript : transfig
postscript to raster : ghostscript
The 'fig' format is well documented and fairly simplistic.
