Google Charts API - Maps
New!

The Google Chart API lets you dynamically generate charts on the fly.


Google Chart API now generates thematic Maps.

From the Google Chart API Group:

"We released a new version of the Google Chart API. It adds many new features that you requested here in this group, for example sparklines, radar charts and thematic maps.

The most important change however is that we removed the limit on the number of requests. This means you can use the Google Chart API without worrying about reaching a limit.

For the documentation about the new features and usage policy please see the updated documentation page: "
http://code.google.com/apis/chart/

The example Chart API Map (above) can be generated with this url.
http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=t&chs=440x220&chd=s:_&chtm=europe&chld=GB&chco=ffffff,edf0d4,13390a%20=GBFR&chd=s:Af9&chf=bg,s,EAF7FE

This would be good if you could overlay kml...
or overlay pie charts (or any other) onto a Google Map.

  • Text encoding with data scaling New!
  • Bar chart zero line New!
  • Radar charts New!
  • Sparklines New!
  • Solid fill Extended!

  • Shape and range markers Extended!

Hi,

It would be great if the chart allowed you to do regionalised charts for the UK, in the same way it does for the US. Are there any plans for this in future versions?

Hi,
I am using Google Chart API to generate a travel map. You can check out the app at my website
http://www.29travels.com/travelmap
It also includes a color selector for different countries.
