A heat map is a graphical representation of data where the values are represented with gradient or solid color variations. The data points are rendered as heat map cells using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) or canvas rendering logics.
Populate data in heat map using different axis types namely numeric, category, and date time
Use numeric axis to represent numeric data in a heat map.
Use datetime axis to represent date in heat map and display date as axis labels with different formats.
Use category axis to represent non-numerical data in a heat map and display text labels instead of numbers.
Heat map axis elements can be customized further to make the axis more readable.
Achieve RTL layout in heat map by reversing the axis labels. This swaps the higher and lower ranges of an axis.
Arrange the axis smartly by moving them to the opposite position from its default position.
Set axis labels with regular intervals, hiding adjacent labels across all types of axes.
Rotate axis labels clockwise or anti-clockwise to any desired angle.
Customize axis label texts using custom formatting options.
Customize the default cell settings using formatting options.
Toggle visibility or format the data labels to display custom texts along with the values.
Change the borders and cell spacing by customizing the border settings.
Customize the default palette settings of the heat map cells with gradient and solid custom colors.
Display additional information about data points in heat map with the help of legend.
Choose between gradient pointer legend and list type legend for improving data points’ readability.
Place the legend anywhere in the heat map area to make it fit best on a page.
Enables paging when a legend item exceeds the bounds. Each legend item can be viewed by navigating between the pages.
Missed data in the data set can be handled with empty points.
Adds an interactive pop-up to the data point on mouse hover.
