thank you for your so importand information, we are now seeking to get statistics for the quality of UNIMARC (or MARC) records, we would really appreciate if someone has done something similar and could give us a hint, on what tools they use.
By quality of bibliographic records, we mean for example how many fields, then subfields, coded data values, etc in the db have something that doesnot make sense, is not consistend with the UNIMARC format. And visualising that data is the next goal.
Thank you in advance

Θέμα: Re: [CODE4LIB] Visualizing (public) library statistics
I realize you asked for examples, not tools, and this may be overkill for what you're wanting, but http://ushahidi.com/products/ushahidi-platform.
Ushahidi would be good if you wanted a geographic, time-series visualization mashed-up with social media.
I imagine that could be a worthwhile project on a large scale for many libraries.
A Google Fusion Table would be a simpler mapping/charting alternative. e.g. https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1JRSvdVxym2lKiM2cnfB7vmY735l58GSxD5O7-g0

YMMV but I've used infogr.am 
Granted the type of data I was using doesn't compare to the kind you are
trying to tame above.
Failing that there's lots of listed at datavisualization.ch that could
help solve you problem. Here some assembly will be required.
