What is the best method of generating a dynamic organisation chart from LDAP data?

I don't want to draw something myself that requires manual updating but something that is synced to AD.

User Profiles for Confluence does have an org chart macro: Macros “Organization Chart” (v 2.0). It may be worth installing it as a trial in your test environment to see if it suits your use case.
