Google Chart Tools: Image Charts

Important: While the dynamic and interactive Google Charts are actively maintained, we officially deprecated the static Google Image Charts way back in 2012. This gives us the right to turn it off without notice, although we have no plans to do so.

The Google Chart API lets you dynamically generate charts with a URL string. You can embed these charts on your web page, or download the image for local or offline use.

You can make a lot of things with the Google Chart API:

Some things that look like charts...

 

And some that don't...

Try It!

Open up a browser window and copy the following URL into the address bar:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=p3&chd=t:60,40&chs=250x100&chl=Hello|World

Tip: Try changing the text from "World" to your name.

How Do I Start?

  1. Read the Getting Started page.
  2. Look at some charts in the gallery.
  3. Try making your own chart on our chart wizard.

Prerequisites

To use this API, you should have a little HTML experience; a little patience to read the documentation; and a little persistence to keep trying if your first charts don't look as you expect them to.
