Tree Map View

The Tree Map visualization displays information hierarchically using tiles of different sizes across your widget. The visualization aims to help you discover patterns, with the proportion of each rectangle representing a different metric.

The size of each tile will be determined by the field selected in the Value Column of the Tree Map Settings.

Tree Maps are useful to display large quantities of data and, in addition, the visualization displays your data according to the screen size available. When maximizing or viewing the widget in preview mode, shapes change to adapt to the new screen size.

Tree Map Layouts

There are three different layouts to choose from when using the Tree Map:

  • Squarified: this is the default layout for the Tree Map. All data is represented in tiles, which makes it easier to identify patterns and relations between similar data.

  • Slice and Dice: the direction is changed to a horizontal-only layout, where the sizes of each "slice" are sized depending on the magnitude of the value. This layout is particularly useful with small amounts of data.

  • Strip: the strip layout is a hybrid between the Squarified and the Slice-and-Dice layouts. The direction is changed to a horizontal layout, but with the tiles used in the squarified layout.

Show Details

In addition to the layout, Android also supports managing the level of detail you want your Tree Map to have. If you add one or more fields under Columns in iOS or Desktop, you will be able to see details on your map broken down by tile. In the following example, the parent "State" tile is broken down by "City".
