As I mentioned earlier, I like Google Charts for its ease of integration. It is very powerful in adding data to charts and merging data is very easy to do. Google is the primary source where an accumulation of data can be created and shown as a chart on a website. This is simply a matter of copying and pasting the link to the website of your choice.

As you can use the Google chart in your website to represent the data in the diagrammatic format. It works dynamically, that is changes as per the change in data.

The Data from the any different sources of the databases can be represented by Google Charts

Depending on your method, it is fairly reliable and fast at getting, merging, and integrating data from multiple sources. But for regular users, the IMPORTRANGE formula causes countless #REF! errors, and it never has an explanation for why it is failing. You will simply be told there is an IMPORTRANGE error, and there is no fix for it.

It Gets The Job Done

I'm giving the data source connectivity a six because it gets the job done. Connecting the platform to where our data originates from is basic code but still just a smidge higher than what our business-side understands. We wish it could be a tad easier to connect but it does the job when we get it set-up.

Data source connectivity has been fantastic for all users because of the sheer range of data sources that are available when using Google Charts. Also, and more importantly in my mind, the ability to work in a real time setting is key when completing projects efficiently and to the best of my ability, all while merging data from disparate sources.

Google Charts is able to quickly integrate new data into the programs and web pages. This has allowed for the easy and quick creation of new plots on the fly. New data can also easily be integrated with older and additional data with no trouble at all.

It has all the qualities that one would require to create amazing charts for various data visualisation purposes without thinking much about the development. You could just concentrate on your data, without thinking about the petty details. It has a wide range of variety. Amazing compatibility with Google Maps API. Above all, it's real-time and dyanamic.

Depends on 100% of your queries and with the API's that you selected and also from the very expertise of the end user regarding the settings that you want to add to its report or dashboard. Several other indicators like connectivity health and ports set for this connection might affect the performance of the drop down settings.

A Datasource is a web service that supports the Chart Tools Datasource protocol. You can send a SQL query to a Datasource, and in response you will receive a DataTable populated with the appropriate information. Some examples of Datasources include Google Spreadsheets, Google Fusion Tables, and SalesForce.

The program can be cloud based or run from your personal computer. Above that, it's very light weight and easy to use. Creating and merging data is incredibly easy and that's even without the need for instruction or a walk through. Graphs can be displayed in a variety of forms, and there is future forecasting. Importing and exporting is also available as one would expect.

Google Charts allows the customization of the data source via JavaScript. That way, you can access and connect your data source the way that best fits your business needs. It is not restrictive, but still allows you to respect the safety standards that you drive in real time.

Charting Google's Way

Google Charts has good data structures and it's simple to use a JSON serializer to add data to the charts.

Data can be added from JSON Arrays of values or inserted row by row, so whether you have all the data ready at once or need to loop through values to add, it's simple.

As previously mentioned, I was not impressed by Google charts APIs to update charts that were already on the page. In my experience, the best way to get it to work with real time data is to redraw the charts with every new data set. This, however, is resource-intensive if there are many charts on the page

Data source connectivity for Google charts is more efficient that other libraries. It is scalable and flexible. However I have noticed a downtime for this type of service a couple of times, which could be a bit frustrating. That is the reason for a bit lower rating in the data source connectivity.
