Google helps you add live charts to your web page using our Chart and Visualization APIs. Both of these APIs are free and simple to use. “Chart API provides Image Charts which are rendered by a Google chart server in response to a simple URL request.

We've accordingly renamed the APIs to Image Charts API and Interactive Charts API and created a simple side-by-side comparison page which you might find useful in choosing which chart tool is better for you,” revealed Google Code blog.
