Google Visualization

My brother was looking into setting up some charts on a website that he administers, so I offered to take a look into how involved it would be.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that what would previously have involved a lot of fiddling around with server side graphics manipulation APIs can now be achieved by using some nifty Javascript libraries.

So far I've only played around with some hard-wired fake data, so the next step is to wrap some real data in a DataTable and see whether it scales up nicely - with the usual cross browser testing.
