Google charts shortcode, lines, xyline, sparkline, meter, scatter, venn, pie, pie2d

Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will create a new shortcode that takes advantage of the Google charts API. This shortcode will let you display a range of charts "lines, xyline, sparkline, meter, scatter, venn, pie, pie2d" See the below shortcode example of a 3D pie chart. Change the type attribute in your shortcode to specify the type of graph you wish to display.

function google_chart_shortcode( $atts ) {
	    'data' => '',
	    'size' => '400x180',
	    'colors' => '',
	    'title' => '',
	    'labels' => '',
	    'type' => 'pie',
	    'advanced' => ''
	), $atts));
	switch ($type) {
		case 'line' :
			$charttype = 'lc'; break;
