Most Compelling Ruby + 2D Web Graphics Combination

Hello,

An admitted Ruby novice that has just been looking at Ruby off/on for a
couple of weeks.

I have a web application in mind (think Google Maps) that I would like
to
implement primarily in Ruby. I am just in the preliminary stages of
sorting
out the requirements, but for now I believe that 2D graphics will
suffice.
Thus, the technology stack I am considering consists of:

Linux + Apache + Ruby + Ruby SVG::Graph + PostgreSQL

Would anyone care to offer any suggestions regarding the Ruby + SVG
part?
Fundamentally, I am looking for a portable and compelling way to drive
2D
web graphics via Ruby. Since SVG typically requires a browser plugin,
maybe
Ajax is an alternative?

TIA,
Regards,
–djw

Yeah, that’s a non sequitur. But I do like pizza.

That was a very nice suggestion and I will definitely look into this.
Much
appreciated.
