well you don't say much about how you would exchange data between client 
and server.
do you want to write a custom app or should the clients simply use a 

i would prefer the second as it limits the programming to the server side 
and a wide variety of clients can connect.
you can either setup a webserver and use python scripts for CGI or write 
even the server in python (realy simple to do).

for graphical data there are e.g.:
- pdf: http://www.reportlab.com/
- jpg, png, ...: http://www.pythonware.com/downloads/index.htm#pil

with both you can create data on the fly and embed it in dynamic webpages.
