The following is my brand new chart. It doesn’t actually make sense in regards to the figures and names. I just made this up for the purpose of showing it to you. It took me all but 5 minutes to get this code onto my blog.

Chart Gizmo Features

While Chart Gizmo is easy to use, it does have several features making it quite a useful application.

  • ChartGizmo is absolutely free
  • Three diagram types: pie, bar, line
  • Easily update and modify charts
  • All chart settings is customizable
  • Different sources of data: static data, dynamic data from JavaScript code, dynamic data from html table on the page
  • Import data from Excel
  • Unicode Support: Supports charts with values in Japanese, Chinese and other Unicode languages.

The developers of this app are already looking to further improve Chart Gizmo. Future releases will include more options, more diagram types and data accumulation as well as data collection.

I’d say it is a good tool to have book marked for later uses since most of us could do with cool looking charts every now and then.
