It's well suited for dynamic data, especially when multiple users are using the application and generating data, it helps us to get analytics of the data for users.

Google Charts

For providing the data group to represent it to others from a huge database, then Google charts is the best way. As with the help of charts you can easily represent the data in the form of bar chart or pie diagram which will be easy to get and have a better understanding of the data.

Pros

D3.js

  • It provides multiple ways of visualizing data easily.
  • It is fast and light on system resources. It is built with JavaScript and visualizations can be easily hosted on the web across browsers.
  • It has a huge community backing it so it is easy to find people to help with whatever you're doing.
Firaz Peer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Charts

  • Using simple line charts, we can show how the usage of resources is within our team.
  • The most common way to use Google Charts is with simple JavaScript that you embed in your web page, and we did that to showcase and share our results.
  • All chart types are populated with data using the DataTable class, making it easy to switch between chart types as you experiment to find the ideal appearance.

Cons

D3.js

  • Hard to code, not a kids play toy.
  • No tutorial from official documentation.
  • Requires web development experience.
Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Charts

  • Google Charts is running a desktop app with the editor for HTML customized views will grant to the end user an endpoint tool likewise it's close competitor Power BI Desktop
  • If the end user is self-paced learner will need to read from the very HTML 5 & SVL basics to how to use the codes developed to load them up on as an embedded object.
  • A friendlier step by step how to guide for every single chart template.

Google Charts is a good product. It's widely supported with deep documentation and a large community. But for me, it wasn't customizable enough. When we started with simple charts, it was great, but as we got deeper and more complex, our needs outgrew the library. If I was going forward, I would choose a more barebones library with more freedom and extensibility.

Alternatives Considered

D3.js

Protoviz does not require as much knowledge of programming to build visualizations as with D3.js or Google Charts. Highcharts or AnyChart are other alternatives that are more specific to building charts only
Firaz Peer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Charts

Sisense is one of the best business intelligence software packages out there. It lets you easily chart all the data you would need. SAP is similar in that it helps companies create formatted and interactive business reports with a wealth of formatting options. One of the reasons I like Google Charts is its seamless integration and the fact that it is free.
