We are excited to announce the introduction of a new chart type to everviz: the Treemap
What is a Treemap?
A Treemap displays data as a set of nested rectangles. Each group is represented by a rectangle where the area is proportional to its value.
When to use a Treemap?
Treemaps are used to show how the whole is divided. It is easy to understand which entity is the most important and how the whole is distributed among entities. The current Treemap in everviz supports one level (i.e not hierarchical data), just to show the value of several entities like in a barplot.
Treemaps have the advantage of making efficient use of space, which makes them useful to represent a big amount of data.
