If you’ve wanted to embed data visualizations in your Force.com app, or if you’ve wanted to create your own dashboards using timelines, heat maps or other specialized visualizations, we have good news for you. Ron Hess and I have put together a project on developer.force.com/codeshare that will allow you to do just that. With the Visualforce components included in this project, you can now easily embed Google Visualizations in your Visualforce pages. To learn how to get the code and walk through a code sample, head on over to the wiki: Google Visualizations in Visualforce Pages.

Also, if you’re at Dreamforce 2008 this week, be sure to attend our “Elevate Your Force.com Platform Apps with the Google Visualization API” session on Wednesday. We will be doing a deep dive on Google Visualizations with the Google team and will also demonstrate how to use Google Visualizations on the Force.com platform.
