Heatmap

Purpose & Application

The heatmap helps you acquire a global vision on combining several indicators and entities. It is also ideal for cutting through data.

The heatmap is good for comparison. Use the heatmap to get an overview of whatโ€™s happening across a large number of metrics and dimensions. Each value represents the intersection of the the x-axis and the y-axis. You can also add a secondary value (for instance variation vs last period).

๐Ÿ“ For example, I want to see all my industrial KPIs by production sites

A heat map visualizes data through color variations. As a matter of fact, this graph is useful for cross-referencing a variety of data, placing variables in rows and columns, and coloring cells in the table.

Heat models are quite effective to show variations between multiple variables. It acts by revealing all the models available, showing forth similarity between variables, and detecting any possible correlations between them.
