Introduction

Treemap is a space-filling visualization for hierarchical structures. It is particularly effective in revealing attributes of leaf nodes using size and color coding. Treemaps enable users to compare sizes of nodes and of sub-trees, and can reveal patterns and exceptions.

We HIGHLY recommend that you read the history of Treemaps page, maintained by Ben Shneiderman, to learn more about the various layout algorithms and applications of treemap. Of course, we also recommend that you read the papers mentionned in this history of treemap.
