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.

Anyone looking for a free, easy to use spreadsheet software should look no further. Google Charts is great for casual users, personal use, or businesses with spreadsheet needs that don't have office. If you're a heady user, run macros, use Office365 already, or want to bounce between web and desktop clients I'd consider excel.

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.

Google Charts

  • Google Charts help create trendline and stacked column charts to show case growth and new customer lift. As well as, they help visualize customer acquisition broken down by segments and sales divisions.
  • Google Charts enables collaboration of analysts with marketing specialists. So, they can address issues with missing campaign information quickly and complete analysis of campaigns before deadline.
  • Google Charts allow their visualizations to be added to Gmail and website for simple readability. So, they don't have to be attached separately to an email being sent to supplier or category teams.

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

  • I would like a couple more introductory videos or a live chat option for when you run into an issue. I think this is a Google-wide problem, not only linked to Google Charts.
  • I have run into some issues with the Dynamic Data but also admittedly could potentially dive in deeper and investigate.
  • It would be great if Google Charts made it possible to integrate Google Chat into the platform.

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.

Google Charts is about as easy to use as the rest of their applications. The UI is very well thought out, allowing you to add what you need, and customize it to your exact liking. The default theme is actually really nice, which helps as most of the time, customizing is not needed.

As a free tool with massively powerful, infinitely customisable charts that can be dynamically updated - Google Charts is my favourite data visualisation tool. However, my hatred of JavaScript does jade my view on it. This is the price of the tool though, and I'm glad it's available for me.

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

Our teams were already using Google's G suite and as google charts simply came tagged along with it, they were more than happy to go with google charts given its capabilities. Though we have another BI solution in place but teams mostly work with google charts and export their output to BI tools advanced insights
