Google Charts

I don't know how I've managed to miss this little gem from Google announced at the end of last year. They've provided a simple URL based API that returns a Graph png. The URL for the chart above is:

http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=p3&chd=t:40,30,20,10&chs=500x200&chl=Google|Charts|Totally|Rock&chco=FFFF0060

They've got bar charts, scatter plots, maps and loads more. Check out the API documentation here:

Thanks Wizard, that's a nice piece of work. I couldn't find any information on the site about who is behind it though.
