Google Visualization API to support any Web-based data

Previously Google Visualization API use to support grapahics/charts for data only in Google Docs/Spreadsheets. That has changed…Google now supports any Web-based data source, including databases and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets! So basically if you have a database-centric website, you can use Google Visualization API to:

  • Embed visualizations directly into your website,
  • Write visualizations and also wrap them as Gadgets with the simple Gadget Extensions of the API,
  • Create dashboards and reports over your own data,
  • Write visualization applications for Google products such as Google Docs,
  • Use as many datasources you want, but just using one API !!
