May I ask what quality aspect should this system focus on. It should be
correct, but what about trade off between system response time and
functionality. Like for example, Zooming feature. Should it be like from
1X->2X or should the image magnify gradually. Since pchart will produce
static images, some of these issues will be faced while designing.
