Good idea! we have many

Good idea! we have many Drupal chart modules but each one has it's own problems. There is no unified solution yet
I used Highcharts, Google Chart API and Visualization API so far
There are several other modules as well for Drupal 6 the never upgraded but where better solutions than what we have in Drupal 7 like Charts, Charts API
I think it would be a good idea complete this comparison wiki http://drupal.org/node/443814
some references :
http://groups.drupal.org/node/93064

Quite agreed with updating that comparison wiki! A table simply showing which are D7, which are D6, which are only dev-releases and which ones are stable would be really helpful! Thanks for linking to that Lullabot article, by the way -- hadn't seen that!

Visualise

hej! my vote: After trying a few options I choose to go with Visualization API and the Highcharts plugin, liking the module a lot ! looking for extension to other libraries. ...

The fact is drupal currently lacks a proper generic visualization API,
It's really surprising too because most of the charts we usually use are exactly the same , even the data we feed them with is the same.
Hopefully Visualization API can be the ultimate module we all need

Quite agreed. I have pretty

Quite agreed. I have pretty high hopes for Visualization API, hopefully it gains traction and becomes an important piece of the puzzle for creating complex viz modules — sort of like the "Views Slideshow" of visualizing stuff in Drupal.

Do you have a roadmap for that project anywhere? How do you see it advancing in the future?

Closed after 1 vote?

I see the poll is from January, but why was it closed with only one vote?

That's really weird. I'm pretty sure I didn't close it? Hm. Maybe I should just delete this poll and redo it.

Time for a new try?

To whom it may concern: I just updated https://www.drupal.org/node/266179 by including the link to "Available Charting Modules", located at https://www.drupal.org/node/2363985 . I started that comparison only a few days ago, which itself was triggered by the https://www.drupal.org/node/2350343 issue (= Combination charts).

If any of you has experience with any of the modules included there, please consider correcting / enhancing where appropriate (e.g. any of the "?"-marks that are still there). I'm coming from the "Forena"-world (as a co-maintainer), with not a lot of experience with any of those other modules. The current content of that comparison reflects what I was able to find out by reviewing project pages, issues queues, etc.

Also, I had never seen that (outdated) Lullabot article, which I found interesting. Even though about 5 years have passed, quite a bit of the issues encountered then are still valid (change D6 to D7 and you're close to today's situation). Maybe somebody should consider re-doing that 2009 exercise, based on what's available today? If they do, it might even become an interesting podcast topic for Add1son (in which I might be interested in participating also for the Forena part of it).
