I’ve been doing some research lately on various graphing packages that are available and thought I’d share a few of the top choices I’ve found. Depending on your needs there are options for PHP, .NET, Adobe Flex, Adobe Air, ColdFusion, Java, Perl, or Ruby on Rails. Here are of some the best I’ve found:
FusionCharts is one of the best I’ve found. These charts can be integrated with ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, JSP, ColdFusion, Ruby on Rails, Python or HTML pages. They also work with Adobe Flex. FusionCharts is built by InfoSoft Global and also provide FusionWidgets (gauges, funnels, and Gantt charts) and FusionMaps.
.netCharting provides some of the best looking charts I’ve seen, however as the name implies they are limited to .NET. The charting components contain various elements including gauges, maps, funnels, and financial charts, to name a few.
amCharts provides Flash based charts, charts for Flex, and .net charts as well. amCharts can extract data from CSV or XML files and read dynamic data generated by PHP, .NET, Ruby on Rails, Java, Perl, or ColdFusion.
