Quite pleased with how this works in the end. All the data is hosted in Google FusionTables and rendered using Google Visualization API. One of the reasons for doing this with Visualisation API is because if people want a pie chart they can have it (or use the editor for something different).

It's still beta but if don't mind some bugs you can try it at: http://sites.hawksey.info/oerhub/survey-explorer/

I'm thinking about using this info with some staff members as we get ready to try out GAFE at the staff level.
Google Drive, and the apps in it--Docs, Sheets, and Slides--are great for people looking for a simple Office suite. It's free, makes collaboration easy, and pretty much anyone can use it. But if you're used to something more traditional, like Microsoft Office, you may be hesitant to use it. Here's how to make Google Drive work more like the desktop suites you're used to.
