That's kind of you deetee, but I'm not a guru of any kind, I simply have loved HP machines since the 70's, still collect and use them, and am louder than most folks.
No, it is not worth it to create the full view, your sample image above shows that it is more technically possible than it would be useful, but many thanks for creating that and your kind offer to do more.
In fact I have no real 'need' for frequent access to a Periodic Table, and if I did I'm certain my Android phone could instantly pull one up in full color, with far more information than I could ever use.
The reason I commented is I have had a small plastic pocket circular slide rule since about 1969(?); the disk is mounted on a rectangular base that has a Periodic Table engraved/printed on the back side, and I have always thought it would be cool to have the table in a pocket device such as a calculator. Of course you've probably seen there is a very impressive PT app for the HP Prime.
These awesome vintage devices are very cool, just search on eBay for them under the name "Sama & Etani". They also have a thin plastic card inserted listing other scientific/engineering data such as unit conversions, physical constants, etc. The back usually has the normal periodic table, but some have a simpler list of elements, not sure why. These great little tools were used as advertising/promotional trinkets in the 60's, so you'll find them with hundreds of companies names/logos printed, in various colors, etc. Check them out!
