Heat maps are valuable representations of data that give great at-a-glance understanding
of complex data sets.
are easy to set up in Visual Fusion and can be used for any connected content. Additionally,

Heat maps for individual data feeds can be created either through the
GUI or XML file configuration. Composer allows anyone in an organization
to apply heat mapping to any data source of points through a GUI. The tool allows
the site builder to apply one of many themes, and set the size and intensity for
each point of heat. Intensity can even be tied to an underlying data value to more
clearly represent the content to the application end user.
XML file configuration allows the app builder to do even more. One additional capability
is displaying filters that allow the end users to manipulate the size and intensity
of the individual points of heat with a slider or some other control.
