And of course, to self-promote my Perl SVG module, there's the Perl 
SVG modules (demos and tutorials at http://roasp.com/ ). 
Tutorial 8 discusses and demonstrates accessing SVG from a MySQL 
database. In the demo I use the perl DBI interface to MySQL. Any 
web hosting service worth its salt will provide MySQL and perl with 
the DBI module for under $20 per month. ;-)
Here is the tutorial:

Actually, to be less self-promoting, the only thing that the SVG 
perl modules provide is a pre-packaged framework for generating SVG.
Any XML-generator (php, c++,vb,...) or manual coding in any language 
can produce SVG. The only issue is knowing how to conncet to a database.
You could also simply use excel macros to do this!.Just pick a language 
and go for it...

Good luck,
