A Treemap displays hierarchical information in a series of clustered rectangles, which together represent a whole. The size of each box represents a quantity. Treemaps also can use color to represent any number of values, but it is often used to categorize the various boxes within the treemap.

Working With Treemaps



  1. Drag one or more attributes into the "Data Points" shelf of the layout panel to define which members you wish to plot. Note that when using more than a single attribute, the outer-most attribute will be used to color code the treemap
  2. Drag a measure into the measure shelf.

  • Click on one or more boxes in the treemap to filter data using the fly-out filtering bar (Keep Only|Exclude|Clear Selections)
  • Double-click on a box to drill into the hierarchy (assuming you are analyzing a Mondrian cube containing hierarchical dimensions).
