Why would I use a Tree map?

A few people have asked me recently – ‘Why would I ever use a tree chart? It takes up so much of my dashboard space!”

Don’t be quick to completely discard it I would say….

Tree charts are great if you need to breakdown multiple categories of data and as such prove a very good complement to the 3-4 category limited pie charts

Wanna see an example?

Curious how the tree chart was built?

It’s nothing complicated

Happy vizzing!
