Dynamically generated graphs with image maps

I am investigating possible methods of creating dynamically generated graphs with data from my DB.
So far I am leaning towards PHP with a thing called libchart, I can generate some nice graphs with that really easy, but now I am looking at creating image maps ontop of these graphs to lead to other graphs etc...

Just wondering what you would suggest is best for this.

I don't know exactly what kind of data you are presenting on your graphs but it sounds like you might be interested in software called "rrd tool" that comes along with rrdgraph module. Rrd tool is a nice logging and graphing engine. You can generate images with it and display them with PHP using GD library.

Are you interested in quantity graphs, association graphs, or something else? If you want to show associations (webs, hierarchies) graphviz is an excellent tool.
