@Axioplase: I don't know how often you mean by "common", but my grammar book has に沿って, に基づいて, に即して and に従って in the same section. So に沿って definitely has this metaphoric (?) meaning that is not at all uncommon. Example sentence from my book: 本校では創立者の教育方針に沿って年間の学習計画を立てています。

@sawa: So is that not correct? Because translating that to English would make sense. "The tax was calculated in accordance with/according to this diagram."
