Group data to provide a top level view of the it.
Display legends to enhance the readability of data.
Lay out data using one of the available algorithms, like Squarified, SliceAndDiceAuto, SliceAndDiceHorizontal, or SliceAndDiceVertical, for visualizing the relative weight of hierarchical data relationships at more than one level.
