I need to represent tank levels on my website, based off of live data. I have access to the data, but need recommendations on what the best tool is to create this view.
I'm using an Apache server, but I was thinking HTML5 might be the best approach. I'd like to show a picture of a liquid tank (like an empty clipart pic of tank). Something like this: http://photo.oempromo.com/Prod_799/Stock-Shape-Collection-Big-Propane-Tank-Key-Tag_45839759.jpg
I'd like to show a fill color that fills based on a percentage. Would it be best to layer the tank, and make the inside of the tank transparent, and overlay that on top of an HTML canvas box? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
