Create a tree map chart in everviz

Follow the steps in this article to create a tree map chart in everviz.

Tree map charts are great for seeing the relative size of one category’s value compared to others, and are pretty much a rectangular version of a pie chart. Viewers can quickly see the different sizes of the category blocks that make up the tree map to judge the relative importance of categories.

The example we’ll create lets us see how each branch in a consulting company has performed during Q4. The tree map chart lets us see quickly which branch has contributed the most revenue to the company’s total.

To create a tree map chart:

Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard

Select Tree map from the Chart type section to the left of the chart wizard’s screen. Notice that the preview pane changes to reflect the chart type you’ve chosen

Click Next to move to the Data step where you can enter the data for your chart

Click the top-left cell (A1) in the data table and press CTRL+A to select all the data in it

Press the delete key to remove the example data

Copy this example data and paste it into the data table at the top-left cell (A1). You’ll see the newly added data reflected in the preview chart

Click Next to move to the Design screen where you can choose a theme for your chart. Click an available theme to see how it looks, or stick with the default theme

Click Next to move to the Text & Annotations screen where you can add contextual information to your chart, such as a title, axis labels and a caption

Click Next to move to the Save or Publish screen where you can save your chart for later amendment or use, or publish your chart

Alternatively, you can click the Continue in Editor button to edit the chart further with more granular options
