Create Google Geo Chart from Pivot Table

This article provides a step by step example of creating a Google Geo chart, using the results from a pivot table.

In many cases your reports return multiple columns of data. If you want to perform simple two axis reporting on this data using a JavaScript chart, create a Pivot table on the report and then associate a chart with the Pivot.
