Use case example: Product sales performance
How are the five products performing in terms of sales numbers in United Kingdom, Canada and North America? Which country is generating most sales and which products are more in demand in each of the three countries?
The treemap chart in above example answers these questions by presenting an analysis of sales performance of 5 products in 3 countries during a given period.
The three categories/nodes (countries in this example) are shown using banners at the top. The nodes are differentiated using different colors for visual distinction. Under each node are nested individual components (products in this example) belonging to respective nodes.
Size of each rectangle as well as column width of each category/node is determined by volume/quantity it represents, in relation to other components within the category as well as between categories. Thus showing hierarchical part-to-whole relationship.
