Clustering of Pie charts

I have a scenario wherein I display multiple pie charts with kpi values, the problem is they overlap each other when there is a zoom out & this makes it hard to see all of them at zoom out, I was wondering if I can cluster these pie charts so that I can see the total kpi values with a single piechart when zoomed out. Basically I want to implement the custom clustering using piecharts.. Im developing using silverlight.NET , kindly help.

Mapping Center Answer:

The best way to do this is to create a new map for each of the scales at which the user will see it when zoomed out.  This is a technique we commonly use when making maps for the Web that will be seen at multiple scales. Here is a blog entry we wrote about how to set up your ArcMap document to do this:

Using scale ranges and group layers you can easily manage what is shown on the map at the various zoom levels when the map is displayed online.
