TUESDAY TIPS BY THOMAS: Heatmap Tables
Use heatmap tables to visualize differences in results.
The heatmap component in the Dapresy Storyteller is great for visualizing differences in result and to highlight if results are meeting targets or not. The color coding makes it easy to spot the most relevant result.
The heatmaps can be colored by either a fixed scale option or by a dynamic scale – whatever works for your use case. Take a look at how the scales vary:
- Fixed scale – colors the cells by defined threshold values
- Dynamic scale – colors the cells based on the minimum and maximum result in the heatmap
As for the colors and ranges – that’s entirely up to you.
In the examples below, you can see two nearly identical heatmaps. Their only difference is that the top heatmap uses a Dynamic scale and the bottom a Fixed scale. In the bottom chart a value will, for example, be yellow if the value is in between 7-20. On the other hand, in the top chart a value will be yellow if it is within the range of 7%-20% of all the values based on the minimum and maximum result in the chart.
