Google Chart API

Just a quick post on a very useful tool. If yoiu have any charts or data to display in a website whatsoever, you need to uses the Google chart API. This useful way of displaying data is versatile, dynamic, and most of all, easy to use. I would talk about it more, but they have the best information on the site itself. This is just an example they provide: http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chs=250x100&chd=t:60,40&cht=p3&chl=Hello|World. Paste it into your browser and check it out. All aspects of your graph are controlled in a single line. In this line, it has the render size,percents to be shown, chart type, and labels listed.
