Hi I have a very large graphic I want to display in a web page. No way can I reduce the size and make it readable. What I would like to do is display the graphic in a frame and allow the web user to move around the image within the frame like google (or most mapping software does)  by putting a cursor on the image holding the mouse key down and moving around.

Any Ideas?

You could just use the google maps api.
just add your image as an overlay on the map and limit the latitude and longitude to your image size.
