Create a treemap

To create a Treemap, select the Visualize tab on the left hand side of the screen. Choose the desired Visualize Type from the dropdown - in this case “Treemap.” Select the desired Value and Label and click Visualize.

Basic treemap

The chart will appear showing the data from the table. In this example, the size of each Country’s visualization depends on its population size.

Change over time

There is also the option to incorporate a Date column - in this case, visualizing a country’s population size over time.

Following the same steps as before, also select the Date column. A Treemap will appear, with the darkness/lightness of the color representing the % change in a country’s population size.
