Pynomo, which is written in Python does alignment nomograms very well if you
have the equation already.  http://www.pynomo.org/ 

It is highly sophisticated, and free.

Ron Doerfler's blog has some great posts on the "Art of Nomography"

from those links you should be able to find your way to more resources.

The author you were trying to think of was probably "Otto", who wrote a very
good book on nomography.
E. Otto, "Nomography," MacMillan, New York, 1963
