Overall Satisfaction with Google Charts

We used Drupal CMS for some of our sites and needed a way to display the survey results on one site in chart format. There was already a module that displayed the results using Google Charts somewhat, but needed modifying. I took the module, modified it to better use the charts and then was able to have it released back on for the community.
  • It allows for a variety of charts styles.
  • Its API is very user-friendly so that you can use a variety of programming languages to interact with it.
  • It interacts well with Google's other APIs so that you can use maps or some other API to create the charts you need.
  • It could use some better customizability of the charts.
  • Better readability of the the items of the charts.
Google Charts is well suited for a project management dashboard, sales dashboard, or even a survey dashboard. I don't see it as being used just to list all your products on a site or small numbers. It would be better used for a larger, high-traffic site.
