What you want is certainly possible in SVG. If you do SVG only, it would
also run in Batik, but note that Batik Squiggle is a SVG viewer, not a
web-browser that also supports html or other web features.

As an example, see http://www.carto.net/williams/yosemite/index.svg which
runs in all browsers (IE needs a SVG plugin) and Apache Batik. So
interactivity and data-loading with getURL/postURL/XMLHttpRequest is
certainly possible with SVG.

We can't give you step by step instructions for your project of course -
since you aren't very concrete with what you want to do. Also, learning
SVG is your job. But you may find a few examples/tutorials at
http://www.carto.net/papers/svg/samples/ - most of the examples also run
in Batik. The ones that don't work in Batik are poorly written (old,
non-standard code) and not the fault of Batik. At this page you may also
find a couple of widgets written in SVG and ECMAScript.

Hope this helps for a start,
