Hello, tornell-ga! 

 The fact that your question has remained unanswered is evidence of
how few software packages seem to meet your needs. I have to confess I
have searched long and hard over the course of two days and these
software solutions are all I have managed to find. There is a lot of
shelf-stocking planogram software, but that is not what you seem to
require, according to the example you provided. Please take a look at
what I have found. Pricing is rarely available for these products so
you will need to contact the vendor.


Capture Plan Interactive Store Plan


"A CAD, PDF, JPEG or a handdrawn sketch of a store's layout is all
that is required for StorePlan to generate an interactive floor plan.
Planograms, market data, fixture information and more can be imported
by StorePlan for detailed space analysis, adjacency planning, store
mapping and a host of other store plan related requirements.
CapturePlan Outputs - Access planogram information from any authorised
web portal, work with retailing partners to ensure that your range is
working for you at a store specific or clustered level. View store
maps online, and load with the retail data required.  Analyse data
across a store or across a cluster. Use heat map overlays to visualise
the opportunities in existing and proposed store layouts. Select any
bay to view the attached planogram."
