Google Chart Tools (and a Pacman Pie Chart)
I felt compelled to make a re-creation of this famous Pacman pie chart using the static API:
A builder or UI editor for generating the static graph urls is a natural extension of this service and would help casual web contributors use the service. The best tool I could find was Chart Maker—it’s decent, but could be improved by having more of the options available (I guess that’s what the docs are for…) and maybe a color picker.
P.S. - in case you’re wondering, the original charts I mentioned in my prior blog post were actually created using this API, but I had just copied them and edited them using Photoshop.
