The ASP.NET MVC HeatMap Chart is a graphical representation of two-dimensional data where values are represented with gradient or solid color variations. The data points are rendered as HeatMap cells using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) or canvas UI rendering.

Dealing with large data

Though the ASP.NET MVC HeatMap Chart can render data points using both SVG and canvas modes, it uses canvas rendering mode while displaying large volumes of data for the best initial load performance and optimized memory usage.

Data binding

The HeatMap Chart can be bound to data using JSON or an array of objects. JSON data can be local or remote, and it can be retrieved using different adaptors. The JSON data can be nested as well.

The ASP.NET MVC Calendar HeatMap visualizes time series data with each data point representing a value bound to a specific time.


Populate data in the ASP.NET MVC HeatMap Chart using different axis types: numeric, category, and date-time.

Numeric axis

Use a numeric axis to represent numeric data in a HeatMap.

Date-time axis

Use a date-time axis to represent time series data in a HeatMap. Similarly, display dates and times as axis labels with different formats.

Category axis

Use a category axis to represent non-numerical data in a HeatMap and display text labels instead of numbers.

Customizable axis

The ASP.NET MVC HeatMap Chart allows you to customize axis elements to make an axis more readable.

Achieve RTL layout by reversing the axis labels. This swaps the higher and lower ranges of an axis.
