Treemap Business Data Visualization

The Treemap Business Data Visualization displays data for two different measurements as a series of colored rectangles. The size of each rectangle represents the quantity of one measurement, and its color represents the quantity of the other measurement. For example, if you are comparing data about your customers, then you can set the size to represent outstanding orders and the color to represent total sales.
