[thelist] Presenting information graphically

I don't know details, but my co-worker has been doing a reporting site
for our company, hosted on a Windows Sharepoint Services site and driven
by SQL Reporting Server. She tells me that SQL Reporting Server by
itself has some drilldown capability, but she is also using Dundas
Graphics (dundas.com) for enhanced charting. Obviously the server side
is a pure MS solution, and I don't know how cross-browser the output is
(IE is our company standard and it is an inside application), but it
seems to be working well for her.

I think the question is "How can I graphically present drilldown 
relationships in a browser?" (I'm not sure if it's actually "browser" or

merely "IE6", enabling an only-in-MS solution.)

If so, then do you know yet in what formats your .NET server can release

the data which needs to be visualized? This, along with any browser 
constraints, can help determine which clientside graphical engines might

be able to help.

(hmm, if you've seen any existing websites which use a graphical display

similar to what you're seeking, then that could help orient the rest of 
us, too.)
