Sometimes when it comes to large amounts of data, a picture really is worth a thousand words. A heatmap is a graphical representation of data where the individual values shown in a matrix are color coded on a graded color scale. These colors are shaded in proportion to the numbers in the cell, making it lot easier for our brains to read than a large table. Usually there are two colors, one on either end of the scale and each intervening value on the scale is on a gradient from one-point color to the other. Most often than not these colors use a warm spectrum (yellow-orange-red), reminiscent of the colors used by meteorologists to represent temperature – hence the name “heatmap”. Unlike large tables and datasets which are often too big to show on a single page, a heatmap is a relatively compact data visualization. It also allows the viewer to instantly pick out patterns or outliers in the data set.
The appeal of heatmaps is that make complex information easily digestible – they’re self-explanatory and intuitive to understand. It’s pretty easy to create an impressive looking heatmap with your data using Displayr’s heatmap maker. Displayr’s heatmap maker allows you to customize the appearance of your chart. While most heatmaps traditionally use a warm to cool color spectrum (think red to green via yellow like weather maps), you can pick what colors you like. Displayr’s heatmap maker also has several inbuilt color palettes to choose from, making it super easy to generate a beautiful chart. You can customize the formatting and appearance of your labels with different fonts and sizes. A heatmap can be a great tool of visual storytelling.
