anyone got any ideas if there is such thing as a script for creating/managing a floor plan?
you know like a birds eye view of a building with info for each room..

SVG is brilliant and it's all XML

And perhaps do some searching at the following:
Planet Source Code
The ASP Resource Index

fractal vibes.. can you tell me more about this - i didnt find the adobe site a bit confusing..
how do you make these data driven images?
what i need is a floorplan image that can be updated easily by a client - do these data driven images use .txt files or something? any good articles on XML? what is that?
thanks, help please! i havent got long :)!

SVG is nothing more than a flavor of XML. Here is a decent WSIWIG
tool for a fast start:

wait! just a few questions
im looking into this becuase i need to make a floorplan you know what i mean?
like a birds eye view of a building so you can see all the rooms.
What i need is something like this: http://www.chemspeceurope.com/gen2.shtml except this one is in flash. is a similar thing possible using XML and SVG?
i need it to be updatable so can you use asp?
help would be appriciated! thanks!

I think building a static version would not be too hard. building a dynamic one
would be non-trivial. You'd basically have to generate the SVG on the fly, probably from a template page of sorts.
Could get pretty complex

ok so what about the zoom in and out function on that page?
is that impossible? and when you mouseover the rooms the info that comes with it.?

Not sure what you mean by the zoom in and zoom out functions. Typically you can zoom in and zoom out on a SVG with a right click. ANd SVG does require the Adobe plugin to render in the browser.
fairly complex, even the static version.
Spend some time here:
After that, go here:
and search for SVG - you will find some articles.
As I said, what you are looking at is a non-trivial application, and will take a good bit of time to learn/accomplish.
