Sorry for the late reply.  I have been working on a karyotype drawing 
tool as part of the Generic Genome Browser that may be useful.  In 
addition to drawing features next to chromosome ideograms, it also 
supports making chromosome 'bands' from any kind of scored features to 
create a sort of heat map on the chromosome itself.

I have a demo running at


and the source is available from the GMOD CVS HEAD
