New from Google: Visualization APIInteresting news on the Google Code Blog recently. Seems that Google have released a new API, this time one for doing online data visualization. Google describe it as follows: The Google Visualization API lets you access multiple sources of structured data that you can display, choosing from a large selection of visualizations. The Google Visualization API also provides a platform that can be used to create, share and reuse visualizations written by the developer community at large. Seems that you can embed these visualizations into your own website, embed them as a Google Gadget and/or use them with Google Docs in some fashion. This seems like something that could be pretty interesting to play with. Not sure that it has any particular relevance to OpenQabal, other than serving as one more demonstration of the value of Google Gadgets. In that regard, if something like this catches on, it argues even more strongly for us to move forward with implementing a Google Gadgets / Open Social container as part of OpenQabal dashboard. Of course, that is already being strongly considered anyway.
