In keeping with Neubrain Holiday tradition, here is another gift of visualization best practice.


Your data is only as good as your ability to understand and communicate it, which is why selecting the right visualization is essential.

Introducing, TREE MAP

 Tree map is a complex graph, which enables representation of composition (part-to-whole data relationship) to be combined with hierarchy, so the composition of various levels of the hierarchy can be compared.

With tree maps, Size and Color are the crucial elements. The graph uses the Size of rectangles to encode one quantitative variable and Color intensity to encode a second.
