Growing interest in treemap visualizations for hierarchical data (electronic product catalogs, sales analysis, manufacturing quality control, supply chain supervision, etc.) have led to a successful licensing agreement for HCIL's Treemap 4.1 program to the HiveGroup, Inc.. The license, arranged by the UM Office of Technology Commercialization, brings $108,000 over three years and ensures that treemaps will be applied to a wide variety of applications.The treemap algorithm was originally developed by Ben Shneiderman, refined in collaboration with Catherine Plaisant, and later extended in cooperation with Ben Bederson.
