Question An Offline chromosome browser that shows over lapping segments

Does anyone know of an offline chromosome browser that shows over lapping segments, similar to gedmatch, that would use raw data? If not, what programming language would be the easiest to do this with?

Does anyone use any of the programs/tools in these links?

You can try this.
I have found it to be quite useful for comparing sequences.

A quick and easy way to graph segments is with a spreadsheet and a stock chart. The start and stop points are used to draw the bar:
Here is a quick example done with LibreOffice:

The data used for the graph is in the upper left. The window at the bottom just shows the chart wizard with the stock chart selected. You have to change the line/bar width and color and rotate the chart to make it look better, but if you are familiar with spreadsheet charts that should be pretty simple.

If you want to do a multi-chromosome chart, it is possible to still use a spreadsheet and a staked chart but it is bit more complicated.
Here is an example of graph using a stacked chart:
