The Visio Services class library, which enables you to create a custom data provider for Visio 2010 drawings hosted on SharePoint Server 2010.
You can use the Visio Services class library, in the Microsoft.Office.Visio.Server namespace, to build custom Visio Services data providers. These data providers permit you to programmatically refresh data derived from custom data sources in Visio 2010 diagrams hosted on a SharePoint Server 2010 site.
