Infogr.am, an infographics creation and sharing service, has released the Infogr.am API to the public allowing programmatic access to the creation, update, and download capabilities of the Infogr.am platform. Developers can use the API to build Infogr.am-powered applications that allow users to create interactive infographics and charts.

At the time of this writing, there are over 30 chart types and infographics can include text objects, videos, images and maps. There are currently three account types; Basic, Pro and White Label.
- Basic Account – A free account that includes over 30 chart types and ability to import data. Infographics can be published online, embedded in web pages and blog posts, and shared on social media networks.
- Pro Account – Includes all the Basic account features plus infographics can be downloaded as PNG or PDF files, can utilize real-time data, includes additional infographic themes, and more.
