I would like to find a ressource where the binding energies of the outer electrons of larger atoms are listed.

I'm discussing Neodymium lasers and I think it would be nice to have a graphic with all the different energy levels that will be used during the lasing process.

I would ideally have a nice picture similar to this one from Neodymium.

The data for levels would be on the NIST database, but I don't know where or how you could generate a chart of levels and transitions as you ask for (except by hand, of course). The data base does have details of multiply ionized states as well. To find $\mathrm{Nd}^{3+}$ you would search for "Nd IV", as "ND I" (and "Nd $0$" means the neutral states), and they use roman numerals to increment from that.

The database will also give you a lot of original source references where available, so it's possible some of those could provide graphs.
