Image Charts (Deprecated)

Google Chart Tools: Image Charts

Important: The Image Charts portion of Google Chart Tools has been officially deprecated as of April 20, 2012. It will continue to work as per our deprecation policy.

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:,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.


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.
