It seems that you cannot include Google Visualisation Charts into a blog post directly.**mages' blog**, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers]. (You can report issue about the content on this page here)Want to share your content on R-bloggers? click here if you have a blog, or here if you don't.

So, I tried to include the output of a googleVis function as a gadget, but also unsuccessful.

Although you can include gadgets into your site template, it doesn’t seem to work with blog posts. So, here is the trick which works for me: the

`iframe`

tag.The following geo map is included as

<iframe width="450" height="40%" frameborder="0" src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7586336/blogger/AndrewGeoMap.html"> </iframe>

As you can see, the chart itself is actually displayed in a page hosted by Dropbox and only inserted into this post via the

`iframe`

-tag.For those of you, who would like to replicate the plot of Hurricane Andrew, here is the R code:

library(googleVis) AndrewGeoMap <- gvisGeoMap(Andrew, locationvar='LatLong', numvar='Speed_kt', hovervar='Category', options=list(width=600,height=300, region='US', dataMode='Markers')) plot(AndrewGeoMap) print(AndrewGeoMap, file="~/Dropbox/Public/AndrewGeoMap.html")
