A few other Visio related tools have been made available recently on the Microsoft Downloads site:
This Microsoft Office Visio 2007 Connector is an add-in for Microsoft Office Visio 2007 that you can use to diagram a Microsoft Exchange Server site topology, including sites, servers, and connections for an organization.

The Data Center Disk Space Monitoring Connector for Microsoft Office Visio® 2007 uses Visio data graphics to display the results of server monitoring. The connector enables effective integration of Microsoft Office Visio 2007 with the service management solution System Center Operations Manager 2007. The connector helps to view the results of monitoring servers in a clear, comprehensive Visio network diagram.
Download the Visio add in and the web server component to connect and generate datasets to connect to your existing diagrams or auto generate your diagrams for your infrastructure monitoring needs. See your data from OpsManager and ConfigManager live in Visio diagrams.
