Sounds reasonable.

Well, I don't know if routers.cgi can be configured to show this but
it seems to me that your problem isn't very common so I guess there
won't be something off the shelf available for you.  This means you have
to write your own front end or adapt an existing one to your liking.

I think you best start simple and write a couple of scripts that create
simple images with just one or two variables.  If you need some help,
read the tutorial from start to finish and do the excercises yourself.
Then, when you feel confident you understand the basics, it will be
easy to extend those scripts to reach your final goal.
