Google Chart Tools

February 15, 2010 Leave a comment

An awesomely elegant simplistic tool
Also there seems to exist a python wrapper for this thing –> GChartWrapper 0.7

The options for the types of charts you can make are simply mind blowing. It ranges from the simple pi-bar charts to the weirdest looking compound charts. The entire gallery resides here, you can pretty much graph anything in the world with all the control in your hands.

And the possibilities become endless with the interactive charts aka the visualization API (javascript-based). Visit the playground. Google with one more great product api towards a better world. 🙂

Enjoy! ~
