This topic describes a treemap, including its overview, application example, and configuration style as well as how to delete a treemap.



A treemap can be used to compare the proportions of metric values of objects.

It displays rectangle labels in different sizes based on a measure. Rectangle labels are determined by a dimension, such as packaging. The size of each rectangle label is determined by a measure, such as shipping cost.

Notice You can specify only one dimension for rectangle labels and only one measure for the rectangle size. The dimension has a maximum of 12 values.
