Improving the visualization of hierarchies with treemaps: Design issues and experimentation
Proc. Visualization `92 (Boston, MA, Oct. 19-23,1992) 124-131.
HCIL-92-06, CS-TR-2901, CAR-TR-626, SRC-TR-92-62.

Controlled experiments with novice treemap users and real data highlight the strengths of treemaps and provide direction for improvement. Issues discussed include experimental results, layout algorithms, nesting offsets, labeling, animation and small mu ltiple displays. Treemaps prove to be a potent tool for hierarchy display. The principles discussed are applicable to many information visualization situations.
