I'm looking for a product or script that will let us generate a network map for use in conjunction with Nagios. We have all of the parent/child dependencies defined in a SQL table, as well as the current status, but I can only find programs that will create a live map on my desktop. I also looked at the graphing Pear module, but it seems that it cannot generate an org-chart type map of the network.

Anyone know of something that will generate an org-chart like network map dynamically?
Depends how fancy you want it to be. You can get a static map easily using at&t's graphviz tools (dot):

There's even WebDot so you can make the nodes clickable, though I haven't tried that. Dot is about as simple to use as anything that exists. Sometimes you'll be annoyed by the way it lays things out, but it works. Hope I interpreted your question correctly.
