Charting development toolkits

Hello all,
I'm looking for charting toolkits and libraries, and
hoping for a tip.
I'm working with a development team to create some
business intelligence, reporting and analysis software.
In addition to standard line and bar charts, the
application needs to do some treemap-type charts. (See:
The team has discovered this:

What is the specific product from ADP that is the focus of your example?

Interaction Design and other fields

Regarding whether IxD is limited to systems which have a software
component. I disagree, I mean people do interact with objects/systems in
the real world which don't have any software components, I think any

the field of Interaction Design evolved out of the need to improve
software systems, but look at something like the telephone. Most
telephones now have software (somewhere down the line), we can apply
interaction design to telephone systems at various levels.
